Abstract

Thirteen patients with urethral stenoses of different etiopathology underwent TUP with an angioplasty balloon catheter. At follow-up, more than 10 months later, 8 out of 10 patients had normal urinary function. Excluding cases of urethral compression due to prostatic hyperplasia, 90% of the stenoses were successfully dilated. The gradualness of the dilatation, the application of a Foley catheter to maintain the dilatation obtained and the prevention of urinary infections are important factors for the success of this method.
