Percutaneous coil embolization of the spermatic vein offers a minimally invasive method for treating symptomatic varicose veins of the scrotum. We describe the case of a 63-year-old man with multiple comorbidities and persistent bleeding from scrotal varicosities. Venography revealed significant left spermatic vein reflux and a large left varicocele. Percutaneous coil embolization of the left spermatic vein completely resolved the bleeding from the left side of the patient's scrotum. Although many vascular specialists possess the technical skills to perform this procedure, they may not be familiar with its use in the treatment of scrotal varicosities and varicoceles.
