One of the causes of male infertility is variococeles; blocked varicose veins in the testicles.
A German team of scientists attending the yearly meeting of the Radiological Society of North America came up with a presentation of how this problem can be solved. Though other health professionals do not vouch for the test, as a control was not done, these scientists opine that a simple and non-invasive surgery may rectify this problem. The procedure termed embolization; involves inserting a tube into the groin and pointing it towards the varicocele.

This procedure was performed on 173 men who were considered infertile and results showed that twenty-six percent of the men or 45 couples were even recorded to have reported conception.
According to Sebastian Flacke this study is a confirmation that sperm count and motility can be significantly increased by varicocele repair.
