Stricture Urethra


Urethral stricture refers to any narrowing of the urethra for any reason whether or not it actually impacts the flow of urine out of the bladder. It is more common in man & boys as compared to females.


There are much procedure for this problem but will try the best treatment as Urethrostomy is an endoscopic procedure that is typically done under general anesthesia. A thin tube with a camera (endoscope) is inserted into the urethra to visualize the stricture (as described in an earlier section).
Then a tiny knife is passed through the endoscope to cut the stricture lengthwise and open the flow of urine. A urinary catheter is then inserted and kept in place for a few days while the urethral incision is healing.
