[Retrograde ejaculation following transurethral surgery for bladder neck sclerosis].

[Article in Bulgarian]


A brief review of the literature on the physiology of ejaculation and the causes and treatment of retrograde ejaculation is made. Retrograde ejaculation following transurethral resection for bladder neck sclerosis is discussed in detail. Seventy four patients were under control for a period of 5 years--69 after transurethral resection and 5 after transurethral incision of the bladder neck. Retrograde ejaculation was observed in 8.6 per cent of the patients. The possibility to solve the fertility problems in young men, as well as to avoid this complication is discussed. Inferences are made and recommendations given for establishing the diagnosis, treatment and prophylaxis of this complication.
