We offer education, events and other related content to give you a better understanding of the Urethral Strictures guidelines.
In males, urethral stricture is defined as a narrowed segment of the urethra due to a process of fibrosis and cicatrisation of the mucosa and surrounding tissue. Meatal stenosis is generally accepted as a short distal narrowing at the meatus, without involvement of the fossa navicularis. Female urethral stricture is defined as a ‘fixed anatomical narrowing’ causing reduced urethral calibre. Majority of series define a urethral calibre < 14 Fr as diagnostic for female stricture.
Review the disease management for male patients with urethral strictures in this Cheat Sheet, including both conservative treatment options and endoluminal ones.
