Abstract

OBJECTIVE : 

 Objective of the study is to determine the effectiveness of CISC in management of recurrent urethral strictures after visual internal urethrotomy. 

METHODOLOGY : 

This study   performed in department of urology   Saidu teaching hospital Swat  from June 2016 to July 2019 on 215 patients who were diagnosed as having urethral stricture disease. Patients were counseled  for CISC after removal of catheter 2 times a day for 8 weeks  and  at 8th  week cystourethroscopy performed along with detail  evaluation of symptoms of urethral stricture to know  recurrence of stricture. 

RESULTS:  

81.39% patients have no urethral stricture on cystourethroscopy  and symptomatic evaluation at 8th week  post visual internal urethrotomy  while 18.60%  patients have recurrent urethral stricture . Length of urethral stricture is the most important prognostic factor, stricture of less than 1 cm has success rate of 62.39% while stricture of more than one cm length has success rate of 20% as shown in table IV. 

CONCLUSION: 

In this study it has been confirmed that CISC  is safe ,cost effective procedure and most of the patients can do it in home with out any complications.
