Table 1 Mean testicular stiffness (elasticity) among patients with testicular varicocele and healthy controls

From: Utility of shear wave ultrasound elastography in evaluation of testicular stiffness in patients with varicocele

Variable Mean stiffness value (mean ± SD) (kPa)
Control (50 testes) 3.84 ± 0.62
Patients with testicular varicocele (90 testes) 7.46 ± 1.64
P value < 0.001*
  1. *Significant P value < 0.05
