Abstract

The Authors report their past experience in the treatment of urethral strictures by means of temporary stent implants (Urocoil). The results at a long-term follow-up were poor in strictures of the bulbous and penile urethra (2/19 at 36 months) and very good in strictures of bladder neck and prostatic urethra (10/10 at 45 months). They conclude that this treatment has been at present abandoned due to high costs and poor results. It could however be effective in the treatment of postsurgical bladder neck strictures recurring after endoscopic treatment.
