Abstract

Results of a retrospective study carried out on 133 patients who underwent surgery for urethral stricture with a minimum follow-up of nine years are presented. Whereas almost all patients were satisfied with surgical treatment, 22% of these, observed at long-term follow-up, required further surgery. In addition, 45% of patients presented an episode of prostatic phlogosis during the year. It is stressed that surgery is indicated for selected, young patients with single strictures less than 2 cm in length, or that, at least, permit single-stage treatment.
