Urethral strictures arise from different causes and can result in slow urinary stream, urinary discomfort, bladder stones, recurrent urinary infections, and urinary retention. Establishing effective treatment of urethral stricture disease can be challenging, and a thorough understanding of urethral anatomy and reconstructive technique is essential.
