Ejaculatory duct

ejaculatory ducts
The seminal colliculus (Latin colliculus seminalis), or verumontanum, of the prostatic urethra is a landmark near the entrance of the ejaculatory ducts (on both sides, corresponding vas deferens and seminal vesicle feed into corresponding ejaculatory duct).
They pass through the prostate, and open into the urethra at the seminal colliculus.

Seminal vesicle

seminal vesiclesvesicula seminalisvesicular gland
The seminal colliculus (Latin colliculus seminalis), or verumontanum, of the prostatic urethra is a landmark near the entrance of the ejaculatory ducts (on both sides, corresponding vas deferens and seminal vesicle feed into corresponding ejaculatory duct).
The excretory duct of each seminal gland unites with the corresponding vas deferens to form the two ejaculatory ducts, which immediately pass through the substance of the prostate gland before opening separately into the verumontanum of the prostatic urethra.

Prostatic utricle

uterus masculinusutriculusvagina masculina
The prostatic utricle (Latin for "pouch of the prostate") is a small indentation in the prostatic urethra, at the apex of the urethral crest, on the seminal colliculus (verumontanum), laterally flanked by openings of the ejaculatory ducts.

Posterior urethral valve

Posterior urethral valvesCongenital urethral valvesPosterior valve urethra
The verumontanum is an important anatomic landmark for pathology in a congenital anomaly known as posterior urethral valves, in which there is a developmental obstruction of the urethra in newborn male infants.
PUV on voiding cystourethrogram is characterized by an abrupt tapering of urethral caliber near the verumontanum, with the specific level depending on the developmental variant.

Latin

Latin languageLat.la
The seminal colliculus (Latin colliculus seminalis), or verumontanum, of the prostatic urethra is a landmark near the entrance of the ejaculatory ducts (on both sides, corresponding vas deferens and seminal vesicle feed into corresponding ejaculatory duct). Verumontanum is translated from Latin to mean 'mountain ridge', a reference to the distinctive median elevation of urothelium that characterizes the landmark on magnified views.

Examples of vestigial remnants of genitourinary development include the hymen, which is a membrane that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening that derives from the sinus tubercle during fetal development and is homologous to the male seminal colliculus.
