In brief: Nonsurgical treatmen

Interventional radiologist treats these varicose veins of the spermatic cord using coils passed into the veins as an alternative to surgery.

In brief: Here it is ...

Varicocele embolization is done exactly like performing venogram of inferior vena cava to reach the opening where testicular vein drains into left renal vein or inferior vena cava on the right one, & interventional radiologist deploys coil + occluding substance so to eliminate gravitation pressure down to varicocle.
The available studies claimed its outcome as favorable as micro-varicocelectomy.
