Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Urethral stents are similar to vascular stents from which they derive. After experimental studies have been performed they are currently implanted into humans with increasing frequency. As far as inflammatory stenoses are concerned the stents may represent a valid option to patients with recurrent strictures who failed internal urethrotomy. With this indication 10 urethral stents have been successfully implanted over the last two years at our center. No complication has been recorded to date. It is concluded that urethral stenting is feasible, minimally invasive and beneficial for patients with recurrent inflammatory urethral strictures.
