Varicocele Embolization (Lower Mainland) [English] Permalink Public

This pamphlet provides a brief description of the medical imaging procedure varicocele embolization including information on who will be performing procedure?, prior to procedure instructions, what happens during procedure?, will it hurt?, how long it will take?, risks or complications, what happens afterwards?, follow-up instructions and information on who to contact if experiencing problems. A varicocele is when the vein in the scrotum that drains blood from a testicle becomes enlarged. This is similar to varicose veins in the leg. A varicocele can cause pain, swelling, and affect your fertility. This procedure closes off the enlarged vein without surgery (called ‘embolization’). When the vein is blocked, your body naturally finds other veins to drain blood from the testicle. (English) Colour
