It is a treatment in which the physician inserts a very small tube (i.e., known as the catheter) into the bladder of an individual to drain out the urine.
This procedure involves surgical removal of the narrowed part of urethra to enlarge that. This procedure usually involves the reconstruction of the surrounding tissues of the urethra. Tissues from other areas of the body, such as from the skin or the mouth, may be used as a graft for reconstructing the urethra. The recurrence of urethral stricture after a urethroplasty process is very rare and is also one of the most preferred treatments.
In this process, the doctor inserts a very thin optical device (i.e., known as the cystoscope) into the urethra, then inserts a small instrument through the cystoscope in order to remove the urethral stricture or vaporize it with the help of a laser light. This surgical procedure is one of the most advanced technique used that usually offers a faster recovery process, minimal scarring and have less risk of recurrent infection.
