[Value of transrectal ultrasonography in the diagnosis of midline prostatic cysts].Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue. 2008 Feb; 14(2):139-41.ZN
To assess the value of transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) in the diagnosis of midline prostatic cysts.
We retrospectively analyzed the TRUS manifestations of 87 cases of midline prostatic cysts.
Of the total number, 33 cases were diagnosed as Müllerian duct cysts, 21 cases ejaculatory duct cysts and the other 33 cases undifferentiated midline prostatic cysts; 19 cases had dilated seminal vesicles, 19 seminal vesicle agenesis, 9 seminal vesiculitis and 5 dilation of the ejaculatory duct.
TRUS, convenient, sensitive, safe and non-invasive, is a desirable method for the diagnosis of midline prostatic cysts.
