The shape-memory polymer is suitable for treating urethral strictures
, according to researcher Gaston De Bernardis.
The urethral stricture
rate was evaluated by a per protocol analysis based on the number of patients who completed the study.
Global Endoscopic Stricture
Management Device Market, by Product
On computed tomography, 3-cm long strictures
were observed at the site of ileocolonic anastomosis (Figure 1), and severe stenosis was observed endoscopically in the ileocolonic anastomotic region (Figure 2).
The current study was aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of CISC after internal optical uretherotomy in the treatment of urethral strictures
in terms of stricture
From December 2014 to November 2016, five single benign biliary stricture
patients at our institution were treated with the long-term balloon indwelling technique.
Internal urethrotomy and urethral dilatation had been performed several times within 1 year due to urethral stricture
after radical prostatectomy.
At baseline, in dilatation group, the mean stricture
length was 23.30+-2.28cm while in combination group, it was 24.23+-3.06cm.
It is interesting to note that there is still great variation among urologist for more than half century old procedure1 to evaluate and follow patients postoperatively for restricturing.2-5 The recurrence of urethral stricture
is also not clearly defined for post urethroplasty patients.
The researchers evaluated 497 stricture
events in the 125 patients.
To compare the outcome of optical internal urethrotomy between OIU alone and OIU with steroid injection at the site of stricture
by means of recurrence rate and time duration for recurrence and symptom improvement in stricture
