Urethroplasty and ureteral Stenting

Urethroplasty is the surgical treatment of urethral strictures. The urethra is part of the urinary system that transports urine to the bladder. It can be injured and its walls can narrow due to many factors including underlying disease, trauma, and congenital conditions. As a result, urine does not flow down the ureter and gets collected in the kidney causing pain and It may also lead to urinary tract and kidney infection.

A ureteral stent or ureteric stent, is a thin tube inserted into the ureter to prevent or treat obstruction of the urine flow from the kidney.The length of the stents used in adult patients varies between 24 and 30 cm. Additionally, stents come in differing diameters or gauges, to fit different size ureters. The stent is usually inserted with the aid of a cystoscope. One or both ends of the stent may be coiled to prevent it from moving out of place
