Stricture Urethra Causes and Symtoms

 

Kidneystone

The urethra’s main job in males and females is to pass urine outside the body. This thin tube also has an important role in ejaculation for men. When a scar from swelling, injury or infection blocks or slows the flow of urine in this tube, it is called a urethral stricture. Some people feel pain with a urethral stricture.

Visual Internal Urethrotomy – Is surgery to repair a narrowed section of the urethra. This is referred to as a stricture. The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body.

BMG Urethroplasty – Treatment of urethral strictures to ensure long-term patency of urethra.

End to End urethroplasty – Urethroplasty is an open surgical reconstruction or replacement of the urethra that has been narrowed by scar tissue and spongiofibrosis (urethral stricture). Urethroplasty is the gold standard for urethral reconstruction with the best and most durable results

 

FAQ’S

What causes urethral strictures?
Occasionally, urologists are unable to determine the cause. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Trauma to the urethra (such as from a fall)
  • Infection in the area (including sexually transmitted diseases)
  • Surgery to remove kidney stones
  • Use of a urinary catheter
  • Radiation therapy to the area
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
  • Surgery for an enlarged prostate

Any condition or injury that can cause swelling and scarring of the urethra may cause it to narrow. This is why the doctor will ask about your prior history of surgeries. If you’ve ever had an endoscope or other instrument inserted into the urethra, there’s always a possibility that it can cause scarring.

What are the symptoms of urethral strictures?
Initially, patients will primarily notice problems with urinary flow, including the following:

  • Incomplete bladder emptying
  • Decreased urine stream
  • Spraying or sputtering of the urine stream

Some patients may also experience pain during urination. If the urethral stricture isn’t treated and it causes additional damage, such as damage to the kidneys, patients may experience bloody or dark urine, bloody semen, urethral leaking, and abdominal pain. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) may occur frequently, along with urinary incontinence and swelling of the penis.
