OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) in the evaluation of hematospermia. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study included 54 patients with hematospermia. Patients age range was between 25 and 75 years (mean=49.7 years). All patients were evaluated by TRUS using a biplane transducer and a Toshiba SSA-270A device. RESULTS TRUS revealed one or more abnormalities in 51 patients (94.5%). Prostatic calcifications were found in 23 patients, ejaculatory duct calculi in 21… Expand
The value of transrectal ultrasound in the diagnosis of hematospermia in a large cohort of patients.
TLDR
Transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) is a noninvasive, reliable tool for the investigation of causes of hematospermia and shows significantly higher percentages for malignant diseases, prostatic calcification and benign prostatic hyperplasia in the group of patients more than 40 years old compared with thegroup of patients 40 yearsold or less. Expand
Transrectal ultrasound in patients with hematospermia.
TLDR
The conclusion is that TRUS is a safe, non-invasive technique which can be used to detect lesions of the prostate, seminal vesicles and the ejaculatory ducts in patients with hematospermia. Expand
Hematospermia--the added value of transrectal ultrasound to clinical evaluation: is transrectal ultrasound necessary for evaluation of hematospermia?
TLDR
Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is a safe and inexpensive modality for evaluating patients with hematospermia and its contribution to patients' management is described. Expand

TLDR
E-MRI should be considered the modality of choice, for the evaluation of patients with persistent hemospermia, as the spectrum of abnormalities found at endorectal magnetic resonance imaging (E- MRI) is presented. Expand
Imaging diagnosis, transurethral endoscopic observation, and management of 43 cases of persistent and refractory hematospermia.
TLDR
Transurethral dilation of ejaculatory ducts, incision of the verumontanum or the distal end of the ejaculatoryducts, and incision or resection of the relevant cysts represent simple, safe, and reliable approaches for the management of refractory cases of hematospermia that do not respond to conservative treatments.

ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Hematospermia.
TLDR
Noninvasive imaging, predominantly transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) and MRI, can be used in men of any age with persistent or refractory HS, or other associated symptoms or signs. Expand

TLDR
Prostatic calculi are an independent predictive factor of severe hematospermia after TRUSBx on the basis of multivariate analysis, but don't affect the positive rate of prostate cancer. Expand
Transrectal ultrasound-guided seminal vesicle catheterization with continuous antibiotic infusion for the treatment of refractory hematospermia
TLDR
TRUS-guided seminal vesicle catheterization with continuous antibiotic infusion appeared to be a safe and effective method for the treatment of hematospermia. Expand

TLDR
The potential causes of hematospermia and its diagnostic workup are discussed, including pathophysiology, anatomic considerations, the imaging appearance of associated pathologic conditions, and management. Expand
Hematospermia is rarely related to genitourinary cancer: lessons learned from 15 years of experience with 342 cases
TLDR
Genitourinary cancers should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of patients with recurrent/persistent hematospermia and associated symptoms, such as hematuria, lower urinary tract symptom, and scrotal pain/swelling. Expand

TLDR
Transrectal ultrasound is the imaging modality of choice in the assessment of chronic hematospermia and none of the patients having biopsies were found to have malignancy. Expand
Transrectal ultrasound in the investigation of haemospermia.
TLDR
Transrectal ultrasonography can suggest a cause of haemospermia in the majority of patients without resort to invasive investigations, and can exclude underlying prostatic malignancy. Expand
Transrectal ultrasonography of the prostate and seminal vesicles with hemospermia.
TLDR
Transrectal ultrasonography was a useful and noninvasive procedure to investigate the causes of hemospermia and could demonstrate latent diseases and exclude malignancy of the prostate and seminal vesicle in patients with heMospermia. Expand

TLDR
Transrectal ultrasonography may provide clinical insight into the causes of significant genitourinary symptoms that may previously have been ascribed to chronic nonbacterial prostatitis or have been considered to be idiopathic. Expand
