you have to be very careful when undergoing surgery for ejaculatory duct obstruction. There may be fatal complications as someone else posted in this forum.

The method was published here: Transrectal US–guided Seminal Vesiculography and Ejaculatory Duct Recanalization and Balloon Dilation for Treatment of Chronic Pelvic Pain Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Volume 17, Issue 1, Pages 169-173 L.
