Varicocele is a disease that is diagnosed in approximately 10% of males’ population. There is data of varicocele which consider the condition as one of the most common causes of male infertility. It is only surgical treatment, to date, that is effective one. However, there is still a group of patients whose fertility problem have not been resolved with the varicocelectomy, that have led scientists to find new ways for treating male infertility. Regenerative medicine and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), in particular, have recently grown up rapidly worldwide. Many preclinical and clinical trials have already demonstrated PRP-therapy effectiveness and safety, de-spite the novelty of the method. This is why the interest in use PRP-therapy for treating male infertility has increased. © 2020, Human Stem Cell Institute. All rights reserved.
