Introduction/aim Many surgical and radiological techniques have been introduced for treating varicoceles. The goal of surgical treatment of varicocele is to occlude the refluxing venous drainage to the testis while maintaining the normal testicular function. The aim of this study was to present our initial experience in laparoscopic varicocele treatment using intracorporeal knot-tying with available laparoscopic instruments.
