Microscopic subinguinal varicocelectomy for testicular pain: a retrospective study on outcomes and predictors of pain relief.

Basic Clin Androl 2021 Jan 7;31(1). Epub 2021 Jan 7.

Department of Urology, Prince Sultan Military Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Background: Approximately 2-10% of patients with varicocele complain of pain. Varicocelectomy for testicular pain is a surgical choice when conservative therapy fails to relieve the pain. Different variables have been reported as prognostic factors for pain relief following varicocele ligation. Moreover, the success rate of varicocelectomy for testicular pain has varied among studies. This retrospective study aimed to investigate the predictors and success rate of microscopic subinguinal varicocelectomy performed for the treatment of painful varicocele.

Results: Among the 132 patients, 83.3% reported pain relief. A significant association was identified between varicocelectomy for unilateral testicular pain and pain resolution (Pā€‰<ā€‰0.0001); no other factors were predictors of pain relief.

Conclusions: Microscopic subinguinal varicocelectomy for testicular pain is an effective surgical alternative. Varicocelectomy for unilateral testicular pain may predict postoperative pain relief in appropriately selected patients.

Does spontaneous renal hemorrhage mandate close surveillance for impending renal cell carcinoma? A case report and literature review.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2020 20;73:44-47. Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Prince Sultan Military Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Electronic address:

Introduction: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) classically presents as a triad of hematuria, loin pain, and a palpable mass. However, Renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) nowadays are more commonly present as incidental findings rather than symptomatic. Wunderlich syndrome is a rare first presentation of RCC.

Presentation Of Case: We present a clinical case of spontaneous renal hemorrhage with unclear etiology that was treated with therapeutic embolization and was found to have renal mass after long follow up.

Discussion And Conclusion: In regards to treating Wunderlich syndrome, some authors favor angioembolization and follow up. Others proposed radical nephrectomy in conditions with no apparent etiology and normal contralateral kidney because of the high incidence of small renal tumors. Spontaneous perinephric hematoma of unknown etiology should be followed up regularly with a CT image for concerning of impending renal tumor.
