It enables the surgeon to complete the examination of several Strictures by a single introduction of the instrument. On gleet calibre (previously recognized as frequent in cases of gleet), it was found that in some cases the gleet disap¬ peared without other treatment, and thus its dependence upon the stricture for its continuance was finally demom strated.

It was also found that the method of operation upon a stricture made tense and thinned by dilatation, re¬. In addition to summarising the international consensus on what the literature specifies about how to manage strictures, the emphasis of the book will be to define the different types of strictures, the underlying anatomy of the urethra and how this relates to pathophysiology and the indications of this for stricture management.

A urethral stricture is an abnormal narrowing of the urethra resulting from fibrosis in the surrounding corpus spongiosum [1]. The urethra measures about 16 to 22 cm in the adult males and 4 cm in the adult females [2].

In males, it is anatomically divided into posterior and anterior segments [2]. Figure 2: Urethral stricture surrounded by the bougies used to diagnose and treat it.

Many men with a stricture will have increasing discomfort with urinating and a slowing of the urinary stream. Hill has formulated my innovations upon the usually accepted views, as follows: [quot]1.

No formal studies of urethral stricture disease incidence have been published. Urethral stricture occur predominantly in males for the male urethra is times longer than the female urethra (see Figure 1), allowing both infection and surgical damage to occur more frequently.

Urethral strictures that are present at birth (congenital) are rare. The recurrence of urethral stricture after a urethroplasty is low. Endoscopic urethrotomy. For this procedure, your doctor inserts a thin optical device (cystoscope) into your urethra, then inserts instruments through the cystoscope to remove the stricture or vaporize it with a laser.

Introduction. Urethral stenosis, although relatively uncommon in the universe of urologic diseases, is by no means a rare condition. It accounts for about 52% of urethral and % of urologic pathology, respectively, and presents an estimated prevalence of % [1.
