Urethrotomy

This uses a special scope that is moved along the urethra until the stricture is found.

A knife blade or laser at the end of the cystoscope is used to cut the stricture and create a gap. A catheter may be placed into the urethra to hold the gap open and let it heal. The suggested time to leave a catheter tube draining is based on the length of the stricture.
