Earlier studies suggested that repeated urethrotomy for recurrent urethral strictures may serve to 'stabilize' the stricture, thereby increasing the cumulative success rate.8,9 However, since the early 1980s some authors have reported that a second urethrotomy had a lower success rate and that repeated urethrotomy did not improve the cumulative success rate.10,11 Simple blind dilatation of a urethral stricture to disrupt and widen the scarred area has been practiced for many centuries.11 Metal, gum elastic, or plastic rods of increasing diameter are sequentially passed down the lubricated urethra until an adequate lumen, usually about 8 mm in diameter, is achieved.12 Self catheterization has been popularized to reduce the risk of recurrence of urethral stricture after urethrotomy.
