Stricture of the urethra

Open urethroplasty

Methods

Internal urethrotomy is usually the first choice for treatment of both anterior and posterior strictures. This operation carries a high risk of recurrence. Many experts are of the opinion that recurrences should be treated by open urethroplasty.

Indications

Recurrence after internal urethrotomy. Primary traumatic strictures.

Routines

Patients are usually admitted the day before surgery and stay in the hospital for 3 days. Recommended sick leave from work is 2-4 weeks.
