The urethra helps discard the urine stored in the bladder outside the body. The urethra is a simple 4–5-cm-long organ in women, and it is a complex, 15–20-cm-long structure in men.
The urethra helps discard the urine stored in the bladder outside the body. The urethra is a simple 4–5-cm-long organ in women, and it is a complex, 15–20-cm-long structure in men. Men have spongy tissue called a corpus spongiosum wrapping around the urethra. Any damage to this structure can lead to improper wound healing and urethra strictures.
A urethra stricture is a clinical problem characterised by fibrosis (bad wound healing) due to any damage and tightening in the urinary tract. There are multiple reasons for a urethra stricture. Urologic interventions in men (operations such as TURP, TURM),a catheter, passing a kidney stone, urethritis (sexually transmitted diseases) or trauma to the perineal area might cause a urethra stricture and injury.
The most common symptoms of a urethra stricture are decreased urine pressure or thin urination. Patients complained about urinating problems and forked urine. The more advanced strictures might appear as urination, like dripping or no urination at all.
Patients with undiagnosed or untreated urethra strictures might have urinary tract infections and bladder stones. With that, the patients might have a burning sensation when urinating or abdominal pain complaints.
The most important step in the diagnosis of a urethra stricture is the medical history of the patient. The uroflow test will be an indicator of patients with suspected urethra strictures. A special X-ray called a ureterogram is necessary for the diagnosis of urethra strictures. Imaging with endoscopes and a camera, called cystoscopy, plays an important role in both the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
If the urethra stricture is left untreated, it might cause a urinary tract infection, bladder stones and kidney failure due to insufficient urine discharge. The infections caused by the urethra stricture might cause high pressure on the urinary tract, which might lead to prostate and testicle inflammation by passing to the testicles or prostate.
The urethra stricture is a machine that is a physical stricture on the urinary tract. This problem cannot be fixed on its own or with medication. The only treatment option is a surgical intervention.
It’s impossible to treat a urethra stricture with medication; the only treatment option is surgery. Patients with a complete urethra stricture might need an abdomen catheter called a cystostomy. When surgical treatment options for a urethra stricture are identified, the location of the stricture and its length are important. There are basically 2 surgical methods for urethra strictures:
Endoscopic interventions can include an incision with a cold scalpel (urethrotomy intern),a laser urethrotomy and balloon dilatation. This is often preferred when the stricture segment is short. The success rate for endoscopic interventions is low, and the chances of relapse are high.
As the length of the stricture increases, the success rate of endoscopic interventions decreases. Some patients might need a surgical intervention once every 2–3 months, which has a significant negative impact on their quality of life. Patients with failed endoscopic interventions must not persist with endoscopic interventions; open surgery should be considered as an option.
A stem cell injection into the tissue around the endoscopic intervention area for urethra strictures can help with tissue recovery and increase the chances of success for a closed intervention. This treatment might be successful if there is no relapse.
A urethroplasty is the name for open urethra stricture surgery. You can check out our article on urethroplasty, which is important to our clinic, here.
The most preferred penile cosmetic surgery in recent years has been penile enlargement surgery. The length of a normal penis when erect is 11 to 14 cm.

Stem cells are special cells in our bodies with unlimited division and regeneration capacity. Our body has many stem cell sources. The easiest accessible stem cell is between fat tissue.
ESWT, one of the greatest gifts of technology to medicine, increases blood flow to penis and healing effects.
However, curvature beyond 30 degrees might cause problems and pain during sexual intercourse, and these cases require treatment. In particular, congenital penile curvature needs treatment.
Patients might experience sexual dysfunction due to penis shape, and this might lead to stress and anxiety during sexual intercourse. Increased stress and anxiety levels might....
To increase the penis size, which is determined by genetics, methods such as penis pumps, vacuum devices, p-shots, shock waves, and fat injections are used. However, the effectiveness of these procedures depends on each case.
Tissue engineering produces missing tissues in a laboratory setting, and these tissues are then transplanted to the body.
A penile implant placed inside the penis through a surgical operation is a medical material. Malleable or inflatable cylinders are placed instead of spongy penis tissue, called..
Before defining premature ejaculation, normal ejaculation and ejaculation duration must be defined. Ejaculation in men almost always follows orgasm.
Patients who want to eliminate the erection problem with the help of shock waves are subjected to an average of 10 or 12 sessions. Treatment is applied gradually, with breaks.
Erectile dysfunction, which is one of the most common male sexual health problems, is the greatest barrier to satisfactory sexual intercourse among men afflicted with the issue.
Erectile dysfunction, which is one of the most common male sexual health problems, is the greatest barrier to satisfactory sexual experiences.
The penis must have a healthy vein structure for erection and must sustain the erection. Arteries’ blood flow to the penis will start an erection, and the inner pressure of the penis will increase.
STDs that are rarely transmitted due to blood transfusions, surgery, and dental procedures; also can be transmitted from mother to baby during childbirth. The prevalence of STDs is increasing around the world.
Genital wart, or human papilloma virus (HPV),is a viral disease in the genital area and around the anus. HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that affects both women and men.
