  • NO CLINICAL EVIDENCE Varicocele a dilemma ! Conflicting reports in the literature
  • Slide 3
  • Quale classificazione ??? La classificazione del varicocele primitivo, su base clinica, pi utilizzata quella proposta da Dubin e Amelar (1970). Essa suddivide il varicocele in gradi: Varicocele subclinico: non visibile n palpabile, evidenziabile solo su base strumentale. Varicocele di I grado: varicocele evidenziabile alla palpazione soltanto durante una manovra di Valsalva. Varicocele di II grado: varicocele evidenziabile alla palpazione (palpabile). Varicocele di III grado: varicocele evidenziabile all'ispezione (visibile)

  • Varicocele implicato come un fattore nel 3550% degli uomini con infertilita primaria e fino al 81% degli uomini con infertilita secondaria. La pi alta incidenza nellinfertilita secondaria potrebbe indicare il varicocele come responsabile del determinare un progressivo danno della funzione testicolare nel tempo. VARICOCELE E INFERTILITA

  • Vari meccanismi sono stati proposti per linfertilit nel maschio con varicocele: IPERTERMIA IPOSSIA E STASI REFLUSSO SURRENALICO E PERIRENALE INGORGO E IPERTENSIONE VENOSA DISFUNZIONE ORMONALE INCREMENTO STRESS OSSIDATIVO Gat et al Hum Reprod 2004 Srini e Veerachari Int J Endocrinol 2011 Patogenesi Tuttavia lesatta causa non ancora conosciuta.

  • Large numbers of studies have suggested that varicocele repair can improve sperm count, motility, morphology and have reported significant improvements in one or more semen parameters in 65% of men and pregnancy rates of 40% in couples.

Men with grade III varicocele show a greater relative improvement in semen quality after varicocelectomy than those with grades I and II varicoceles.

Surgery or embolization for varicoceles in subfertile men (Review): There is evidence suggesting that treatment of a varicocele in men from couples with otherwise unexplained subfertility may improve a couples chance of pregnancy. However, findings are inconclusive as the quality of the available evidence is very low and more research is needed with live birth or pregnancy rate as the primary outcome. 2012 The Cochrane Collaboration.

  • MANAGING VARICOCELE IN ADOLESCENTS The decision of when to treat adolescents with varicocele is controversial, since 80% of adults with varicocele are fertile.The decision of when to treat adolescents with varicocele is controversial, since 80% of adults with varicocele are fertile. Routine surgery is inappropriate for all adolescents since fertility will not necessarily be affected by the varicocele.Routine surgery is inappropriate for all adolescents since fertility will not necessarily be affected by the varicocele. There is no beneficial effect of pubertal screening and treatment for varicocele regarding chance of paternity later in life. On the other hand, waiting until patients present as adult with potential irreversible infertility can be unacceptable.On the other hand, waiting until patients present as adult with potential irreversible infertility can be unacceptable.

Haddad NG Haddad NG, Houk CP, Lee PA.Houk CPLee PA Abstract Varicoceles are the most common cause of infertility in men. Despite the high prevalence of varicoceles, only a small percentage of men with varicoceles have subfertility or infertility. In adolescents, the prevalence of varicoceles increases dramatically during puberty to reach adult prevalence rates. The development of varicoceles during puberty can impair testicular growth and function. Data on hormonal and semen parameters in adolescents with varicoceles are limited, making it harder to determine which varicoceles are associated with infertility and which may benefit from surgery. The main indications for varicocelectomy in adolescents with varicoceles include a volume differential between unaffected and affected testes or abnormality in semen analysis Display Settings: Abstract Send to: See comment in PubMed Commons below Pediatr Endocrinol Rev.

  • Guidelines on PaediatricUrology(ESPU) affecting fertility The recommended indication criteria for varicocelectomy in children and adolescents are : varicocele associated with a small testis additional testicular condition affecting fertility bilateral palpable varicocele pathological sperm quality (in older adolescents) varicocele associated with a supranormal response to LHRH stimulation test symptomatic varicocele. Repair of a large varicocele physically or psychologically causing discomfort may be also considered

  • A rapid catch-up growth of the affected testis after varicocelectomy has been consistently reported in 5080% of adolescents and suggests that early intervention is effective as well as defensible. In addition, semen quality improvement and high paternity rates among men who underwent a varicocele repair during adolescence have been demonstrated.
