Transurethral resection of the ejaculatory ducts: etiology of obstruction and surgical treatment options

Transurethral resection of the ejaculatory ducts: etiology of obstruction and surgical treatment options
Ejaculatory duct obstruction is an uncommon but surgically correctable cause of male infertility. With the advent and increased use of high-resolution transrectal ultrasonography, anomalies of the ejaculatory ducts related to infertility have been well documented. Although there are no pathognomonic findings associated with ejaculatory duct obstruction, the diagnosis should be suspected in an infertile male with oligospermia or azoospermia with low ejaculate volume, normal secondary sex characteristics, testes, and hormonal profile, and dilated seminal vesicles, midline cyst, or calcifications on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS).
