Uroflowmetry in the early diagnosis of postoperative urethral stenosis

, : Uroflowmetry in the early diagnosis of postoperative urethral stenosis. Minerva Urologica E Nefrologica 44(3): 173-176

Uroflowmetry is a widely used technique for evaluation of lower urinary tract "obstructions", and urethral strictures (US) are considered a typically late complication after endoscopic or open prostatectomy. The clinical experience of the Department of Urology of Catania University is reported. Uroflowmetry was included in routine checks of prostatic patients after operation (TUR or open surgery) and the tests were performed at 40 and 180 days post-operatively. This proved to be an effective and objective means for early diagnosis of urethral strictures.
