    Pediatric varicocele embolization.
    Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2003 Dec;6(4):169-75
    Division of Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology, Childrens Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA.
    Varicocele is a very common condition. Although some patients may have pain, it is usually asymptomatic. Treatment of adolescent and pediatric patients is based on the desire to prevent testicular dysfunction and infertility that may be irreversible in adulthood. Read More
    [Treatment of adolescent varicocele: is percutaneous embolization better?].
    Cir Pediatr 2009 Jul;22(3):134-8
    Servicio de Cirugía Pediátrica, Hospital Virgen del Camino, Pamplona, Navarra.
    Unlabelled: There are still doubts as to the most suitable criteria when considering surgery as the indication and optimal treatment for adolescent varicocele.

    Material And Patients: We reviewed the hospital and primary health care histories of patients diagnosed by ultrasound for varicocele over the last 7 years. The data was taken from computerised clinical histories and hard copy back-up material stored and processed in computer format. Read More
    Tolerance of glue embolization under local anesthesia in varicoceles: a comparative study of two different cyanoacrylates.
    Eur J Radiol 2014 Mar 3;83(3):559-63. Epub 2013 Dec 3.
    Department of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Ghent University Hospital, De Pintelaan 185, 9000 Ghent, Belgium.
    Purpose: To find out whether in varicocele embolization the copolymer cyanoacrylate glue (NBCA-MS) has a better patient tolerance compared to the monomer n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA).

    Materials And Methods: N=112 insufficient spermatic veins (left sided N=84, right sided N=28) diagnosed in N=83 adult males were prospectively randomized for blinded embolization with either NBCA N=54 (Histoacryl) or with NBCA-MS N=58 (Glubran2). Before, during and up to one week after embolization, patient discomfort was assessed by a standardized pain scale. Read More

    Background: To evaluate pain, radiation and recurrence rates in patients undergoing varicocele embolization with three different embolic materials.

    Methods: Retrospective study of 182 consecutive patients who underwent transcatheter retrograde varicocele embolization from July 2011 to May 2015 with glue (Glubran(®)2) (group 1, n=63), mechanical agents (coils and/or plugs) (group 2, n=53) or a sclerosing agent (polidocanol) (group 3, n=66). Patients were asked by telephone interview to evaluate pain during embolization and at 1, 7 and 30 days using a quantitative pain scale ranging from 0 to 10. Read More
