The use of funiculus spermatic microdissection in 28 patients, with outpatient procedures and local anesthesia, versus Palomo's technique, in 35 patients, is presented. All patients present a twelve, month follow-up. Increased values for mean sperm density and mean sperm motility and morphology and a lower recurrence rate (3.5%) with the new techniques are described. Microdissection may be considered among the methods of treatment for varicocele since this approach is simple and eliminates many unwanted effects observed with the standard technique.
