Background: Based on the importance of varicocele, the aim of this is to compare the comparison between doppler sonography before and after laparoscopic lymphatic sparing varicocelectomy and microsurgical subinguinal varicocelectomy. Patients and Methods: Patients with primary varicocele who were referred to Ahwaz Imam Khomeini Hospital after informed consent were included. Primary information included varicocele severity, pain intensity, latency, Doppler sonography (Resistive index (RI), venous return, venous diameter before and after Valsalva) were obtained, and then patients were entered into one of the two groups of surgery. The admission duration, return to work duration, the pain and analgesic consumption, and the length of anxiety were recorded in patients. Patients were examined 3 months later, and the severity of varicocele in the examination, pain score, latency, Doppler sonography indices, sperm indices in both groups were registered. In the end, the information is entered into Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) statistical software and evaluated. Results: We observed that the severity of varicocele (P = 0.34), pain (P = 0.45), latralite (P = 0.56), RI (P = 0.65), intravenous diameter (P = 0.75) did not show statistically significant difference between the two groups, also in evaluating these indices after surgery, there were significant differences between the two groups in pain (P = 0.04) and time for return to work (P = 0.036). Conclusions: The methods used in varicocelectomy did not have any effect on the outcome of the treatment. Accordingly, using any of these methods can improve the post-surgical state of the patients and promote the fertility performance and reduction of complications due to surgery in patients.
