The seminal vesiclesare also called glandulae vesiculosae or vesicular glands. The seminal vesicles are composed of a pair of simple tubular glands. 
The function of the seminal vesicles
The seminal vesicleis a very important organ in the male. The importance of the seminal vesicle lies in that the seminal vesiclessecrete a significant proportion of the fluid which ultimately becomes semen.
The two seminal vesiclescontribute about 60 percent of the fluids passed from the human male during ejaculation. That is to say, the secretion of the seminal vesiclesconstitutes the bulk of the semen. It is a thick fluid that contains the sugar fructose.
Vesiculitisis the disease of the seminal vesicles.
Generally speaking, seminal vesiculitisisan inflammation of the seminal vesicles. Although it may occur independently, seminal vesiculitis is most often secondary to prostatitis.
