The purpose of this study has been to establish the role of spermatic cord in the etiopathogenesis of fertility. We describe herein the anatomy and pathology of the spermatic cord and objective method for diagnosing the disorder and evaluating the therapeutic results. The most pathological conditions affecting the cord there was a complete resolution, this condition it isn't the same for the vas deferens or varicocele. A variety of diagnostic modalities including thermography, Doppler, and particularly ultrasonography may be used to study satisfactorily. Ultrasonography technique may provide a simple but accurate non-invasive method for accurately determined pathological conditions of the scrotum. It has a limited role in the management of the normal vas deferens or in congenital malformations including agenesis of vas deferens.
