Antegrade sclerotherapy has been used since 1987 to treat patients with varicocele. The method has proved to be easy to perform, safe, economical and effective. The treatment results in 285 patients who had undergone sclerotherapy for a total of 317 varicoceles are presented and discussed. This followup study revealed that 285 of the patients (91%) had no signs of recurrent or persistent varicocele. In 57 cases (42%) of inability to conceive the partners became pregnant after antegrade varicocele sclerotherapy. Antegrade sclerotherapy represents an alternative treatment to high ligation and retrograde sclerotherapy, as well as to laparoscopic and microsurgical procedures.
