Table 2 Mean testicular stiffness (elasticity) among patients groups (A, B) 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
Group A (Normospermic patients with testicular varicocele; 34 testes) 5.93 ± 1.46
Group B (Oligospermic patients with testicular varicocele; 56 testes) 7.57 ± 1.53
P value < 0.001*
  1. *Significant P value < 0.05
