How does vas deferens infection which result in a scar cause blockage? Does it block from inside the lumen or outside?

In brief: Usually inside lumen

Vas deferens infection can cause scar tissue which will block flow within the lumen of the tube.
Also, a vasectomy can cause inflammation which can cause scar tissue blockage upstream into the groin.
