Introduction : Varicocele causing primary infertility can be dealt by open surgery, laparoscopy, venographic embolisation and microscopic surgery. Microscopic varicocelectomy by subinguinal incision is being compared with the more commonly performed traditional inguinal open varicoccelectomy. Material and Methods : Hundred males with primary infertility were divided randomly into two groups for inguinal and subinguinal varicocelectomy. Pre-operative and postoperative seminal parameters were compared. Both groups were analysed for post operative complications - iatrogenic hydrocele, testicular atrophy and recurrence of varicocele. Results : No significant difference was seen in improvement of seminal parameters and pregnancy rates between both groups. A significantly lower incidence of complications was noticed in subinguinal microscopic group.
