Author(s): Dr. RK Mathur, Dr. Sudarshan Odiya and Dr. Yash Madnani
Abstract: The study was conducted in Department of General Surgery Maharaja Yeshwantrao Holkar Hospital, Indore. The study was conducted prospectively and on 50 patients presenting with symptoms of urethral stricture. It included both anterior and posterior stricture. A detailed preoperative assessment along with careful history-taking and physical examination was carried out and patients were evaluated by means of retrograde Urethrogram, Urethrosonogram, and uroflowmetry (pre-operatively possible only in cases not having SPC).
Using patients as their own control, we have observed in patient-reported outcomes, significant improvement in urinary symptoms and QOL scores with preservation or improvement of erectile function after urethroplasty. After urethroplasty surgery the patient concerns with pain, sexual function and voiding complaints are the primary determinants of patient satisfaction. Patients with objective evidence of recurrent stricture were more likely to be satisfied if they reported minimal pain, erectile and voiding dysfunction.
