Abstract

Objectives. To study the effects of varicocelectomy on testicular temperature. Methods. Testicular skin surface temperature was directly measured with an electronic thermometer calibrated to 0.01°C in 119 men before and after microsurgical varicocelectomy and in 45 control patients without varicocele. Results. Testicular temperatures in men with varicocele were elevated preoperatively (right side [R]: 34.00 ± 0.91°C/left side [L]: 34.37 ± 0.87°C unilateral; R: 34.07 ± 0.83°C/L: 34.34 ± 0.85°C bilateral) relative to control patients (R: 33.04 ± 2.47°C/L: 32.86 ± 2.52°C) (P
