SURGICAL TREATMENT OF STRICTURES OR OBLITERATIONS OF URETHRA
Urologii︠a︡ (Moscow, Russia : 1999)
The article introduces the clinical and statistical analysis of 113 patients treated for urethral strictures (US) in the urological clinic of the Rostov State Medical University in 2011. 58% of patients experienced a recurrent course of the disease. Radical curative surgery was possible in 93 (82.3%) patients. In other cases, non-invasive strategy was indicated (13.3%) or surgery for urethral stricture was impossible due to comorbidities (4.4%). Resection with urethral end-to-end anastomosis, which is the most effective approach to the treatment of patients with US, was possible in only half of the patients (51.8%). In the rest of the patients, one-, two- or more stage urethroplasty substitution was carried out. By the end of 2013, treatment of 84 (90.3%) patients was completed with a total of 110 operations. 9 (9.7%) patients were scheduled for operation in 2014.
