Introduction & Objective: Varicocele is often mentioned as a common cause of testicular atrophy. The aim of this study was to evaluate varicocele-related testicular atrophy with Duplex sonography.

Materials & Methods: Seventeen patients with testicular atrophy due to varicocele were included into the study.

Results: Echogenisity of the atrophic testis was homogeneous. Mean peak systolic velocities (PSV) in intratesticular arteries for atrophic and normal testes were 5.57±2.03 cm/s and 6.49 ± 1.37 cm/s, respectively. The difference was not significant (P>0.05).

Conclusion: Varicocele-related testicular atrophy is not associated with testicular parenchymal heterogeneity, and does not affect the intra-testicular and testicular arterial PSV.
