Gynae Uroplasty

An operation to correct a urethral stricture, which is a tight narrowing of the urethra (water passage). This may be due to scarring from prior vaginal surgery, trauma, longterm catheter, radiotherapy, or no cause may be identified. A urethroplasty may be required if other less invasive treatments such as urethral dilatation, urethrotomy or catheters have failed. A urethroplasty can also be used to reconstruct a severely damaged or short urethra.
