URETHRAL STRICTURE is the narrowing of the urethra, the tube that removes urine from the body, caused by scarring that obstructs and restricts the flow of urine as a result of inflammatory, ischemic or traumatic processes. If left untreated, the obstruction caused by a urethral stricture can lead to a reduced quality of life, bladder and kidney damage, and urinary tract infections in men.

Dr Onyango Oluoch – Leading Urologist in Nairobi, Kenya, is a specialist in the treatment and management of Urethral Strictures in Kenya. He advises anyone with the mentioned symptoms to visit the hospital for diagnosis and treatment.

Do you want to break your stricture cycle?
Dr Onyango Oluoch - Urologist offers the following Urethral Stricture Treatment Options:
• Intermittent self-catheterization
• Dilation
• Internal Urethrotomy (DVIU)
• Urethroplasty

Intermittent Self-Catheterization
This is an attempt to manage urethral strictures by periodically inserting a catheter into urethra to keep the scarred area from narrowing. This method can be painful and embarrassing, and requires a constant supply of catheters.

Standard Dilation
This is typically, the first line of treatment for urethral strictures. With Standard Dilation, the doctor can use either rods of increasing diameters, or a non-drug coated dilation balloon, to stretch the urethral narrowing (stricture) without causing further injury. This is normally a short-term treatment solution.

Urethroplasty involves surgical removal of the stricture and reconstruction of the urethra by performing an invasive, open surgical procedure. Ideally, urethroplasty is the sure procedure that offers lasting results to patients.

Common symptoms of Urethral Stricture include:
• Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s)
• Hesitancy with urination
• Dribbling after urination
• Frequent urination
• Weak or irregular urinary flow
• Straining to urinate
• Painful urination
• Urine leakage with little or no warning
• A sense of incomplete emptying

Causes of Urethral Stricture
• Trauma or injury to the urethra or perineum
• Sexually transmitted infections
• Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
• Radiation therapy
• Medical procedures: catheterization, prostate surgeries
• Cancer of the urethra or prostate

If left untreated, strictures can lead to serious complications, including bladder and kidney damage, infections, poor ejaculation, and infertility in men.
