Urethral stricture

  1. 1. DEPARTMENT OF UROLOGY EDUCATION Production Team Dr Abraham Benjamin - Manager Medical Informatics Mr. Naresh Kumar - Coordinator Medical Informatics Urethral Stricture
  2. 2. What is Urethral Stricture ? A urethral stricture is a scar in or around the urethra, which can block the flow of urine, and is a result of inflammation, injury or infection.
  3. 3. Anatomy of the Male Reproductive System
  4. 4. Who is at risk for Urethral Stricture?  Urethral strictures are more common in men because their urethras are longer than those in women.  Thus men's urethras are more susceptible to disease or injury.  A person is rarely born with urethral strictures and women rarely develop urethral strictures.
  5. 5. What are the causes for Urethral Stricture?  Stricture disease may occur anywhere from the bladder to the tip of the penis.  The common causes of stricture are trauma to the urethra and infections such as sexually transmitted diseases and damage from instrumentation.  Trauma such as straddle injuries, direct trauma to the penis and catheterization can result in strictures of the anterior part of the urethra.
  6. 6. What are the causes for Urethral Stricture?  In adults, urethral strictures from instrumentation trauma may occur after prostate surgery and urinary catheterization.  In children, urethral strictures most often follow reconstructive surgery for congenital abnormalities of the penis and urethra, cystoscopy and occasionally may be congenital.
  7. 7. What are the symptoms of Urethral Stricture ? painful urination. slow urine stream. decreased urine output. spraying of the urine stream. blood in the urine. abdominal pain. urethral discharge. urinary tract infections in men. infertility in men.
  8. 8. How is Urethral Stricture Diagnosed ?  Evaluation of patients with urethral stricture includes a physical examination.  Urethral imaging (X-rays or ultrasound).  The retrograde urethrogram is an invaluable test to evaluate and document the stricture and define the stricture recurrence. Combined with antegrade urethrogram, length of the stricture can be determined.
  9. 9. How is Urethral Stricture Diagnosed ? Normal Urethrogram Obstructive Urethrogram
  10. 10. How is Urethral Stricture Treated?  Treatment options for urethral stricture disease are varied and selection depends upon the length, location and degree of scar tissue associated with the stricture.  The main treatment options include enlarging the stricture by gradual stretching (dilation).
  11. 11. How is Urethral Stricture Treated?  Cutting the stricture with a endoscopic equipment (urethrotomy) and surgical repair of the stricture with reconnection and reconstruction called urethroplasty.  Urethral Stents where a biocompatible hollow tube is placed on the inside of the stricture to allow for free passage of urine.
