Abstract

Objective: Reflux is in important criterion for the diagnosis of varicoccles and in the existence of reflux more than 1 s is the lower limit for the diagnosis of varicoccles. We proposed to assess the relationship of vein diameters with the incidence, duration and flow Volume of reflux using color Doppler sonography (CDS) in patients with clinically diagnosed varicoccle.
