  • [Title] Internal urethrotomy under local urethral anaesthesia is feasible with sedation and analgesia.
  • BACKGROUND: Urethral stricture is a common condition, and direct vision internal urethrotomy is prefered as the first treatment option by many urologists, for strictures shorter than 2 cm.
  • This procedure is generally performed under general or spinal anaesthesia.
  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the feasibility of adding local urethral anaesthesia to intravenous sedation and analgesia (sedoanalgesia) methods in patients undergoing internal urethrotomy.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 21 and 15 patients with anterior urethral strictures underwent internal urethrotomy under local urethral anaesthesia, with or without sedoanalgesia, respectively.

  • [Title] Early experience with hyaluronic Acid instillation to assist with visual internal urethrotomy for urethral stricture.
  • PURPOSE: The clinical usefulness of hyaluronic acid (HA) instillation during visual internal urethrotomy (VIU) for decreasing the incidence of recurrent urethral stricture was assessed.
  • After insertion of a Foley catheter following urethrotomy, HA was instilled via an 18-gauge tube catheter between the urethral lumen and Foley catheter.
  • We evaluated the success rate of this procedure by comparing retrograde urethrography (RGU) results, maximum flow rates, and postvoid residual urine volumes preoperatively and 3 and 12 months postoperatively.

  • [Title] 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedures' associated with 'Internal Urethrotomy': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure' for 'internal urethrotomy'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 30 publications, and group two 183 publications.

  • [Title] Internal urethrotomy and intraurethral submucosal injection of triamcinolone in short bulbar urethral strictures.
  • OBJECTIVES: In clinical practice, internal urethrotomy is an easy procedure and is offered as a first modality for treatment of short urethral strictures.
  • Internal urethrotomy refers to any procedure that opens the stricture by incising or ablating it transurethrally.
  • The most common complication of internal urethrotomy is stricture recurrence.
  • The curative success rate of internal urethrotomy is approximately 20%.
  • This study evaluated the efficacy of triamcinolone in the prevention of anterior urethral stricture recurrence after internal urethrotomy.
  • METHODS: Fifty male patients with anterior urethral stricture were randomized to undergo internal urethrotomy with or without urethral submucosal injection of triamcinolone.
  • Using general anesthesia urethrotomy was performed.
  • Triamcinolone (40 mg) was injected submucosally at the urethrotomy site in 25 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Injection of triamcinolone significantly reduced stricture recurrence after internal urethrotomy.

  • [Title] 'Spatial Concepts' associated with 'Internal Urethrotomy': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Spatial Concept' for 'internal urethrotomy'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Spatial Concept'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 27 publications, and group two 627 publications.
  • Here are the top 10.

  • [Title] Triamcinolone injection following internal urethrotomy for treatment of urethral stricture.
  • PURPOSE: To investigate the success rate of internal urethrotomy when combined with corticosteroid injection in urethral scar tissue for treatment of urethral stricture.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study on 70 patients with urethral stricture, who underwent internal urethrotomy from June 2003 to July 2008.
  • Patients were randomized into 2 groups; the experimental group (34 patients) who received triamcinolone acetonide injection and the control group (36 patients) that received an injection of sterile water after internal urethrotomy.
  • CONCLUSION: It seems that steroid injection after internal urethrotomy is a safe method, which may delay the recurrence of urethral stricture.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A simple technique to facilitate treatment of urethral strictures with optical internal urethrotomy.
  • Treatment options include catheterization, urethroplasty, endoscopic internal urethrotomy, and dilation.
  • Optical internal urethrotomy offers faster recovery, minimal scarring, and less risk of infection, although recurrence is possible.
  • However, technical difficulties associated with poor visualization of the stenosis or of the urethral lumen may increase procedural time and substantially increase the failure rates of internal urethrotomy.
  • In this report we describe a technique for urethral catheterization via a suprapubic, percutaneous approach through the urinary bladder in order to facilitate endoscopic internal urethrotomy.

  • [Title] Internal urethrotomy for recurrence after perineal anastomotic urethroplasty for posttraumatic pediatric posterior urethral stricture: could it be sufficient?
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the long-term outcome of visual internal urethrotomy (VIU) after perineal anastomotic urethroplasty for posttraumatic pediatric posterior urethral strictures.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data of 22 boys who had undergone internal urethrotomy for recurrent stricture after perineal anastomotic urethroplasty for posttraumatic posterior urethral strictures between 1998 and 2008 were analyzed retrospectively regarding patient age, interval between anastomotic urethroplasty and internal urethrotomy, stricture length, surgical technique, and postoperative complications.
  • The interval between anastomotic urethroplasty and internal urethrotomy was early-after 12 weeks or less-in 13 children or late-beyond 12 weeks-in the remaining 9.

  • BACKGROUND: Although screw breakage or loosening are rarely encountered, they were reported to occur after instability of the internal fixation.
  • We present a case in which internal urethrotomy for posterior urethral stricture caused erosion of a bone screw into the urethra which was subsequently removed by anterior meatotomy.

  • [Title] Treatment of male urethral strictures - possible reasons for the use of repeated dilatation or internal urethrotomy rather than urethroplasty.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible reasons for repeated urethral dilatation or optical internal urethrotomy rather than urethroplasty in the treatment of male urethral strictures.
  • In these groups, previous treatment was dilatation in 70%, 76% and 72%, urethrotomy in 26%, 15% and 28%, and urethroplasty in 4%, 9% and 0, respectively.
  • The group that had undergone urethroplasty compared with 5 - 6 repeated dilatations or urethrotomies was significantly younger (mean age 48.2 v. 60.2 years) with a lower prevalence of co-morbidities (47% v. 80%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Factors that possibly influenced the decision to perform repeated urethrotomy or dilatation instead of urethroplasty were limited theatre time, increased patient age and the presence of underlying co-morbidities.

  • [Title] Effect of a temporary thermo-expandable stent on urethral patency after dilation or internal urethrotomy for recurrent bulbar urethral stricture: results from a 1-year randomized trial.
  • PURPOSE: The long-term success rate of dilation and/or internal urethrotomy is low in cases of recurrent urethral stricture.
  • We investigated the ability of the Memokath™ 044TW stent to maintain urethral patency after dilation or internal urethrotomy for recurrent urethral stricture.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 92 patients with recurrent bulbar urethral strictures (mean length 2.7 cm) were treated with dilation or internal urethrotomy and randomized to short-term urethral catheter diversion (29) or insertion of a Memokath 044TW stent (63).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with recurrent bulbar urethral strictures treated with dilation or urethrotomy and a Memokath 044TW stent maintained urethral patency significantly longer than those treated with dilation or urethrotomy alone.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: traditionally, anterior urethral stricture has been treated using minimally invasive techniques (dilatation and internal urethrotomy), which are unable to cure more than 30-35% of patients.
  • On the other hand, urethral reconstruction surgery (urethroplasty) is more complex and requires training, however it can cure a wide majority of patients in a single surgical procedure.
  • There is substantial evidence that internal urethrotomy is an excellent method for treating stricture of up to 1cm in length, however its efficacy decreases drastically above 1.5cm.
  • Notwithstanding, urethroplasty is directly indicated for larger strictures, especially if prior urethrotomy failed.
  • CONCLUSION: this procedure must be managed selectively, applying the appropriate treatment aimed at curing and not only palliating the disease.

  • Treatments were identified using the Physician Current Procedural Terminology Coding System, 4th edition, procedure codes and stratified into 4 treatment types: urethral dilation, direct vision internal urethrotomy, urethral stent/steroid injection, and urethroplasty.
  • Direct vision internal urethrotomy was the most common treatment, followed by urethral dilation, urethral stent/steroid injection, and urethroplasty.
  • Despite the poor overall efficacy of urethrotomy and urethral dilation relative to urethroplasty and despite the known complications of stent placement in this setting, the urethroplasty rates were the lowest of all treatments.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Direct visual internal urethrotomy is limited to selected cases in the management of pendulous urethral stricture.
  • With experience and identification of various prognostic factors, conservative management by dilatation and internal urethrotomy is being replaced by various reconstructive procedures, using skin flaps and grafts with high success rates.
  • Single-stage urethroplasty is preferred over the 2-stage procedure as the latter disfigures the penis and poses sexual problems temporarily.

  • OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the efficacy and outcome of one-stage oral mucosa graft urethroplasty, which is currently the procedure of choice for treating lengthy and complicated urethral strictures not amenable to excision and primary end-to-end anastomosis.
  • All patients had previously undergone either internal urethrotomy or repeated urethral dilation.
  • RESULTS: While no severe complications at the donor site were observed during follow-up periods ranging from 3 to 55 months (mean = 14 months), two patients who had received a tube graft developed distal anastomotic ring strictures that were managed by internal urethrotomy.
  • The other five required no postoperative urological procedure even though one who had received a ventral onlay developed a penoscrotal fistula.
  • CONCLUSION: Oral mucosa is an ideal urethral graft, and oral mucosa graft urethroplasty is an effective procedure for repairing complicated urethral strictures involving long portions of the urethra.

  • PURPOSE: Although direct-vision internal urethrotomy can be performed for the management of short, bulbar urethral strictures, excision and end-to-end anastomosis remains the best procedure to guarantee a high success rate.
  • A total of 21 patients (63.6%) underwent urethrotomy, dilation, or multiple treatments before referral to our center.
  • At a mean follow-up of 42.6 months (range, 8 to 96 months), 29 patients (87.9%) were symptom-free and required no further procedure.
  • Of four recurrences, one patient was managed successfully by urethrotomy, whereas the remaining three did not respond to urethrotomy or dilation and required additional urethroplasty.
  • However, careful consideration is needed to decide on the surgical procedure if the stricture etiology is nontraumatic.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: We identified 20 successive patients who required a secondary endoscopic or surgical procedure after anastomotic repair of a postpelvic fracture urethral injury from 1979 to 2010.
  • Of the 20 patients, 18 had undergone perineal repair and 2 a perineo-abdominal procedure.
  • Late failures resulted from narrowing of the anastomosis and were corrected by direct visual internal urethrotomy in 7 patients and surgery in 2.
  • Late cases present by a weak urinary stream, are due to narrowing of the anastomosis, and are usually corrected by direct visual internal urethrotomy.
