Are the vas deferens are cut and tied in a transurethral resection of the prostate (turp)?

Almost never

Prostate
Used to be common for some urologists to tie of the vasa deferentia (plural) after open prostate surgery, Which was associated with about 2% incidence of epididymitis & when fewer different antibiotics were in existence. TURP is associated with lower incidence of postoperative infection & catheters remain inplace for shorter time compared to open surgery. Thus no need for vasectomy with TURP.

Dr. Michael D. Fox answered:

Has anybody done surgery to correct a blockage of the vas deferens?

Yes

Hand
prior vasectomy is a common reason for such surgery with excellent success rates in many patients. Other causes of blocked Vas are rare. Epididymal blockage on the other hand is more common from STD's and other infections. Surgery to correct this is possible but much lower success rates can be expected. Subspecialty Urology would be the best answer for this type problem.

Dr. Jesse N. Mills answered:

Can I have most of the vas deferens removed during my vasectomy?

Why?

Vasectomy
There is no advantage to removing more vas than a centimeter. It doesn't make it more successful and can increase complications.

Dr. James M. Krick answered:

How much of the vas deferens would constitute too much removed, to be able to have a vasectomy reversal?

Vas reversal

Vasectomy
Successful fertility after vas reversal depends on many factors. Length excised is usually not well documented. A more identifiable determinant would be length of time since vasectomy. The greater the number of years, the less the success. At best, the success rate rarely is above 50% (using pregnancy as the determinat of "success").

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

I have what feels like a rough mass around my vas deferens of my left testical. I have noticed slight discomfrt from yesterday. could it be cancerous?

Get evaluated.

Stringio
To be reassuring, what you are describing sounds like an epididymal cyst, a very common, benign, and non-cancerous condition. Masses outside of the testicle itself are rarely malignant. However, I recommend you get an exam to make sure it is not something that may warrant a testicular ultrasound. I applaud your use of testicular self examinations. Continue them to see if you notice any changes.

How long does it take for the vas deferens to reproduce semen after ejaculation?

Vas deferens is duct

Prostatitis
Sperm is produced in the testis, they pass into the vas (1) via the epididymis & thence to the ejaculatory duct. Most of your semen is produced in the prostate gland (3) & seminal vesicles (2). Some men are able to ejaculate a second time 15 - 30 minutes after the first. Men tend to produce less semen as they age & thus take longer before they can ejaculate again. Hope this answers your question.
