prostatic ductule

prostatic ductule

[duk′tyo̅o̅l]
Etymology: Gk, prostates + L, ductulus, little duct
any of 12 to 20 tiny excretory tubes that convey the alkaline secretion of the prostate and open into the floor of the prostatic part of the urethra. The ductules are joined together by areolar tissue, supported by extensions of the fibrous capsule of the prostate and its muscular stroma, and wrapped in a delicate network of capillaries.
