Narrowing of any part of the URETHRA. It is characterized by decreased urinary stream and often other obstructive voiding symptoms.
An abnormal passage in any part of the URINARY TRACT between itself or with other organs.
Pathological processes involving the URETHRA.
Surgery performed on the male genitalia.
A tube that transports URINE from the URINARY BLADDER to the outside of the body in both the sexes. It also has a reproductive function in the male by providing a passage for SPERM.
Abnormal communication most commonly seen between two internal organs, or between an internal organ and the surface of the body.
Endoscopes for visual examination of the urinary bladder.
Partial or complete blockage in any part of the URETHRA that can lead to difficulty or inability to empty the URINARY BLADDER. It is characterized by an enlarged, often damaged, bladder with frequent urges to void.
Passage of a CATHETER into the URINARY BLADDER or kidney.
Surgery performed on the urinary tract or its parts in the male or female. For surgery of the male genitalia, UROLOGIC SURGICAL PROCEDURES, MALE is available.
An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.
An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.
A stricture of the ESOPHAGUS. Most are acquired but can be congenital.
Procedures used to reconstruct, restore, or improve defective, damaged, or missing structures.
The mechanical laws of fluid dynamics as they apply to urine transport.
Lining of the ORAL CAVITY, including mucosa on the GUMS; the PALATE; the LIP; the CHEEK; floor of the mouth; and other structures. The mucosa is generally a nonkeratinized stratified squamous EPITHELIUM covering muscle, bone, or glands but can show varying degree of keratinization at specific locations.
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
The act of dilating.
Tongues of skin and subcutaneous tissue, sometimes including muscle, cut away from the underlying parts but often still attached at one end. They retain their own microvasculature which is also transferred to the new site. They are often used in plastic surgery for filling a defect in a neighboring region.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the urinary bladder.
An abnormal passage or communication leading from an internal organ to the surface of the body.
An abnormal passage or communication between a bronchus and another part of the body.
An abnormal passage between two or more BLOOD VESSELS, between ARTERIES; VEINS; or between an artery and a vein.
An abnormal anatomical passage connecting the RECTUM to the outside, with an orifice at the site of drainage.
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument through a small incision in the skin i.e., percutaneous; or through a natural orifice and along natural body pathways such as the digestive tract; and/or through an incision in the wall of a tubular structure or organ, i.e. transluminal, to examine or perform surgery on the interior parts of the body.
Abnormal passage communicating with the STOMACH.
Inflammation involving the URETHRA. Similar to CYSTITIS, clinical symptoms range from vague discomfort to painful urination (DYSURIA), urethral discharge, or both.
Abnormal passage communicating with the ESOPHAGUS. The most common type is TRACHEOESOPHAGEAL FISTULA between the esophagus and the TRACHEA.
Abnormal passage in any organ of the biliary tract or between biliary organs and other organs.
Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.
The condition of an anatomical structure's being constricted beyond normal dimensions.
The external reproductive organ of males. It is composed of a mass of erectile tissue enclosed in three cylindrical fibrous compartments. Two of the three compartments, the corpus cavernosa, are placed side-by-side along the upper part of the organ. The third compartment below, the corpus spongiosum, houses the urethra.
Division of tissues by a high-frequency current applied locally with a metal instrument or needle. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Abnormal passage communicating with the PANCREAS.
An abnormal anatomical passage between the RECTUM and the VAGINA.
Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
An abnormal anatomical passage between the URINARY BLADDER and the VAGINA.
An abnormal passage communicating between any component of the respiratory tract or between any part of the respiratory system and surrounding organs.
An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).
Abnormal passage between the ESOPHAGUS and the TRACHEA, acquired or congenital, often associated with ESOPHAGEAL ATRESIA.
Temporary or permanent diversion of the flow of urine through the ureter away from the URINARY BLADDER in the presence of a bladder disease or after cystectomy. There is a variety of techniques: direct anastomosis of ureter and bowel, cutaneous ureterostomy, ileal, jejunal or colon conduit, ureterosigmoidostomy, etc. (From Campbell's Urology, 6th ed, p2654)
The grafting of skin in humans or animals from one site to another to replace a lost portion of the body surface skin.
Payments or services provided under stated circumstances under the terms of an insurance policy. In prepayment programs, benefits are the services the programs will provide at defined locations and to the extent needed.
Abnormal communication between two ARTERIES that may result from injury or occur as a congenital abnormality.
Time period from 1801 through 1900 of the common era.
A characteristic symptom complex.
The record of descent or ancestry, particularly of a particular condition or trait, indicating individual family members, their relationships, and their status with respect to the trait or condition.
A selective increase in the number of copies of a gene coding for a specific protein without a proportional increase in other genes. It occurs naturally via the excision of a copy of the repeating sequence from the chromosome and its extrachromosomal replication in a plasmid, or via the production of an RNA transcript of the entire repeating sequence of ribosomal RNA followed by the reverse transcription of the molecule to produce an additional copy of the original DNA sequence. Laboratory techniques have been introduced for inducing disproportional replication by unequal crossing over, uptake of DNA from lysed cells, or generation of extrachromosomal sequences from rolling circle replication.
Laboratory techniques that involve the in-vitro synthesis of many copies of DNA or RNA from one original template.
Removal of dental plaque and dental calculus from the surface of a tooth, from the surface of a tooth apical to the gingival margin accumulated in periodontal pockets, or from the surface coronal to the gingival margin.
In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.

  • A urethral stricture is a scar that develops in the urethra. (
  • The stricture narrows the urethra and can lead to problems with urination, including a complete inability to urinate. (
  • A urethral stricture is a scar that develops in the urethra (the tube that runs from the bladder to the end of the penis, through which urine passes). (
  • A rectourethral fistula is an abnormal hole that forms between the urethra and the rectum. (
  • We report a novel surgical technique used to repair a rectourethral fistula associated with two short-segment urethral strictures located in the anterior and posterior segments of the urethra in a patient with prior unsuccessful repairs. (
  • Urethral strictures were observed in 16 patients with equal incidences at the meatus and the other portion of the urethra . (
  • Also known as a urinary rectal fistula, a rectourethral fistula is a small hole that forms between the urethra and the rectum. (
  • The global urethral stricture market is majorly driven by the increasing inflammation of the urethra, increasing cases in urinary tract infections, trauma from injury or accidents with damage to the urethra or bladder, and growing penetration by market players. (
  • The increasing rate of urinary infection, rising inflammation of the urethra, and increasing cases of cancer are likely to enhance the growth of urethral stricture. (
  • In the urethra (hairy region), urethral stones may be developed. (
  • Fistulas are also common complications that may result in drops or a stream of urine to ooze out of the urethra that is reconstructed. (
  • Twenty-six (27.9%) of the strictures were in the posterior urethra of which 18 (59.2%) were posttraumatic. (
  • Fifty-seven strictures (61.3%) were in the anterior urethra of which 51 (54.8%) were postinfective. (
  • Most postinfective strictures are located in the anterior urethra (bulbopenile), whereas posttraumatic strictures affect the bulb or cause posterior urethral disruption or distraction the latter is a serious challenge to the urologist, because they are often associated with significant complications including incontinence and erectile dysfunction [ 4 ]. (
  • Various forms of repair of the urethra have been developed and perfected over the years, ranging from excision and end-to-end anastomosis in short segment strictures to substitution urethroplasty in long segment strictures. (
  • It is characterized by fistulisation of the penile urethra to the skin with a normal urethral meatus [ 3 ]. (
  • Permeability of the distal urethra is tested with a urethral dilator until 12 Fr (a). (
  • Any inflammation of the urethra resulting from injury, trauma , previous surgery, or infection can cause urethral stricture. (
  • In both males and females, muscle (urethral sphincter) surrounds the urethra. (
  • The urethral sphincter closes the urethra to keep urine in the bladder, and just prior to urination, the sphincter muscle relaxes to allow urine to leave the bladder and pass through the urethra. (
  • Urethral stricture refers to chronic fibrosis and/or narrowing of the lumen of the urethra. (
  • Urethral stricture is the term applied to abnormal narrowing of the anterior urethra, whereas the American Urologic Association prefers the term stenosis for narrowing of the posterior urethra, which lacks spongiosum. (
  • Any inflammation of urethra can result in scarring, which then can lead to a stricture or a narrowing of the urethra. (
  • Urethroplasty failure rates vary enormously, from around 5% for the simplest repairs to damage in a normal urethra by an experienced surgeon, to 15-20% when a buccal graft from the inside of the mouth can be used to extend a urethra, to close to 50% when graft urethral tubes are constructed from other skin. (
  • This neo-urethra is usually constructed about a small 5 or 8 French soft silicone stent/urethral catheter. (
  • To demonstrate what a urethal stricture is, in this X-ray, figure 1, dye is injected into the urethra, which looks like a tube and appears dark gray. (
  • It categorizes strictures based on examination with a 16 French flexible cystoscope which is a narrow tubular instrument that is passed through the urethra to examine the interior of the urethra and the urinary bladder. (
  • 7. Urethral Diverticula in Women are Associated with Increased Urethra-Sphincter Complex Volumes: A Potential Role for High-Tone Nonrelaxing Sphincter in Their Etiology? (
  • Sonourethrography has been shown to be accurate, sensitive and specific for the diagnosis and assessment of penile and bulbar urethral strictures in male anterior urethra. (
