Medical Procedure Comparison Chart

Varicocele Treatment California

1. Larger, more rigorous studies are needed to evaluate pregnancy outcome after treatment. Pregnancy has been reported after ablation however, 13% of patients also have reported spontaneous abortions.

2. Certain varicoele subtypes such as those that are avascular or cervical may not respond to treatment. MR imaging can demonstrate the vascularity of varicoceles and allow determination of whether embolization is a reasonable treatment option.

3. Numerous varicoceles cannot be treated, periphery of large varicoceles can grow, varicoceles in certain locations require a high level of skill to treat safeley with this method or may require additional procedure such as hysterescopic myomectomy

4. Up to 25% of patients may undergo another procedure after myomectomy

5. Larger follow up studies needed. Reinterventions for varicocele symptoms are reported by company as usually not necessary.

6. Major complication rate is 1.25%.

7. Major complications occur in 43% of patients and minor complications in 32% of patients.

8. Overall complication rates are 51% for total abdominal hysterectomy and 23% for vaginal hysterectomy.

9. Overall complication rate is 2.5% by experienced user.

10. Rate of symptom recurrence is 3% at 1 year post-UFE.

11. Cumulative risk of varicocele recurrence is 10% after one year.

12. 94% of patients feel the treatment was effective in eliminating their symptoms. Recovery time is typically 4-5 days.

13. Spontaneous pregnancy rates after UFE are 40% after two years. For 85.5% of these women, it was their first pregnancy. Other studies have found a subsequent fertility rate of 58% after UFE.

14. Approximately 35% of women conceive after uterine myomectomy.

15. Not every varicocele can be removed during a single myomectomy procedure, this depends on location and technique used. It is not uncommon for women to have multiple myomectomies. For example, only women with submucosal varicoceles are eligible for a hysteroscopic myomectomy. varicoceles located within the uterine wall cannot be removed with this technique. Repeat myomectomy is sometimes necessary for recurrent varicocele symptoms and may be associated with postoperative complications and a fertility rate of around 56%.

16. Follow-up studies over several years have shown that it is rare for treated varicoceles to regrow or for new varicoceles to develop after uterine varicocele embolization. This is because all varicoceles present in the uterus, even early-stage nodules that may be too small to see on imaging exams, are treated during the procedure. Uterine varicocele embolization is a more permanent solution than the option of hormonal therapy, because when hormonal treatment is stopped the varicocele tumors usually grow back.

17. Our UFE recovery is 2 days, patients return to work by day 7. UFE reported to have shorter hospital stays (1.71 days versus 5.85 days, P<.01) and faster recovery to physical activities (9.50 days versus 36.18 days, P<.01) than those who had hysterectomies.

18. 60% of patients need less than or equal to 8 weeks and 40% of patients need more than 8 weeks to return to work after laparoscopic uterine myomectomy.

Why We Specialize in Varicocele Embolization

Embolization is performed through a single pinhole puncture in the neck or leg. Unlike a major surgery, there is a shorter recovery, less pain, less risk and complication. 

Outpatient procedures require no hospital stay or anesthesia. Procedure is done in a specialty vascular center. Get back to your normal everyday routine!

Varicocele Embolization is supported by numerous clinical studies as an effective treatment for varicoceles and does not interfere with testosterone or other organs.

There is no cutting, burning, or major incisions requiring stitches. You get to go home the same day with just a Band-Aid. 

Our Promise to You!
