'Clinical Signifixance Of Verumontarum'
Seminal Colliculus, also known as Verumontarum is a landmark for various pathologies and surgeries:
1. Anatomical Landmark for Posterior Urethral Valve
2. Important site for Urinary Carcinoid Tumor
3. Single most important landmark for TURP:
It lies proximal to External Urethral Sphincter. It is thus the distal landmark for TURP. Any furthet resection from here, will lead to injury to External Urethral Sphincter.
4. Prostatic Utricle:
The prostatic utricle, a remnant of the paramesonephric duct, arises from the urethra at the level of the verumontanum and projects posteriorly. This blind ending structure can be associated with hypospadias
