Abstract

We performed transumbilical laparoendoscopioc singlesite varicocelectomy (LESS-V) for three patients with left painful varicocele. Their average age was 34.7 years old (23-46 years old) and their varicocele grades were grade III in all cases. The operation was performed by the same laparoscopic surgeon. The average operative time was 65 minutes (49-96 minutes) and the estimated blood loss was little. Postoperative pain was tolerant and analgesics was not used in all cases. There were no remarkable complications and the patients were discharged 2 or 3 days after surgery. All cases had complete resolution of pain within 5 months (2-5 months) and hydrocele, testicular atrophy, or recurrence was not seen. LESS-V is safe and feasible for laparoscopic surgeons.
