Complete pain relief was achieved by laparoscopic resection of both spermatic cords. The case provides insights into the pathophysiology of testicular pain and may suggest alternative therapies for chronic orchialgia. Read More

The purpose of this study was to evaluate possible pain sensation differences in patients after retrograde varicocele embolization either with n-butyl-(2)-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) or with n-butyl-(2)-cyanoacrylate + methacryloxysulfolane (NBCA-MS). Transcatheter varicocele embolization was performed in 64 consecutive patients (62 left, two bilateral). Embolization was done with NBCA (n=32) or NBCA-MS (n=32). Read More
