Urethra surgery


Specialty of Urology

This surgery involves removing the affected area, followed by a reconstruction of the urethra. Results vary depending on the size and location of the stenosis, and the surgeon's experience. In cases of acute urinary retention, you can place a super-pubic catheter as emergency treatment. This allows the bladder to drain through the abdomen. There is currently no drug treatment for the disease. If no other treatment works, it can perform a urinary diversion, called a appendicovesicostomy (Mitrofanoff procedure). This allows you to drain the bladder through the abdominal wall via a catheter.
