Purpose: To investigate a new method and its effect on the
procedure of dilating the ejaculatory duct and flushing the
seminal vesicle with an F9 seminal vesicle scope in patients with
chronic and recurrent seminal vesiculitis.
Patients and Methods: Twenty-six patients with a diagnosis
based to signs, laboratory detection, digital rectal examination,
and transrectal ultrasonography were involved in present study.
The patients underwent a surgical procedure of dilating the
ejaculatory duct and flushing the seminal vesicles with an F9
seminal vesicle endo-scope. All patients were followed for
3 months to 1 year after treatment.
Results: There were significant reductions in symptoms, signs,
white blood cell and red blood cell counts on microscopic
examination, seminal vesicles size, improvement of inner walls
echo in transrectal ultrasonography, and semen culture positive
rate. Moreover, all patients showed improvement.
Conclusions: The present study provides a new transurethral
seminal tract endoscopic technique with seminal vesicle scope
through the normal anatomic tract to treat patients with chronic
seminal vesiculitis. It proved to be easily conducted with
minimized complications. Further investigations are needed to
confirm our results.
