Surgical treatment of varicocele can be carried out using different techniques. The laparoscopic approach [1-2] represent a new trend that we used to ligate and dissect the spermatic vein in 10 patients, 8 with monolateral left varicocele and 2 with bilateral varicocele. The average time for laparoscopic surgery has been 45 minutes for monolateral varicocele and 65 minutes in the bilateral one. The absence of important complications during and after the operation has allowed to dismiss all patients 48 hours after the surgical treatment. The preferential direction of laparoscopic approach to varicocele is represented by the bilateral form.
