We describe a novel strategy of subcutaneous endoscopically assisted ligation of spermatic vessels (SEAL-SV) utilizing a modified epidural-&-spinal needle. This system achieves very beauty and minimally invasive outcomes. Now we have efficiently carried out SEAL-SV for 5 consecutive boys and regarded it a easy, secure, and efficient process for adolescent varicoceles.
