Endoscopic urethrotomy in the treatment of urethral strictures



Endoscopic urethrotomy in the treatment of urethral strictures



Revista de Chirurgie, Oncologie, Radiologie, O.R.L., Oftalmologie, Stomatologie. Chirurgie 35(5): 321-334



The results are presented, obtained with endoscopic urethrotomy in the treatment of 62 patients with urethral strictures of various etiologies. A total of 51 very good results have been recorded, 10 cases were improved, and the treatment failed in one case. In 8 of the patients periodic dilatation was performed at wide time intervals. The patient follow-up continued for a period of 3 years. It is estimated that the final results of the application of this procedure should be evaluated on a much larger number of cases, and a longer follow-up. As a general rule however, optical urethrotomy appears to be an excellent method for the treatment of urethral strictures of the unique, limited type. Very good results can also be obtained in multiple, traumatic and recidivant strictures.
