The vas deferens is a long, thin, thick-walled, even tube that allows it to be easily identified by palpation, as it presents as a uniform, smooth and hard cord, which distinguishes it from its surrounding elements. Very white consistency.
Near its termination the vas deferens presents a dilation that is called the ampoule of the vas deferens.
THE Sperm Fungus: extends from the upper end of the border of the testis to the deep inguinal annulus, where its elements take different directions.
The left spermatic funicular is longer, which means that the left testicle remains lower than the right.
In addition to the vas deferens, it consists of arteries, veins, lymphatics and nerves.
The arteries are three in number:
Deferent Duct Artery
The veins form two plexuses, one anterior and one posterior in relation to the vas deferens.
The anterior venous plexus is the largest.
The testicular artery walks between the anterior plexus mesh.
