Is the urethrotomy procedure still up to date?

Since open urethroplasty for treatment of urethral strictures has the highest and longest-lasting success rate, the question of why we still perform a large number of internal urethrotomies arises. What are the advantages of the endourological incision?

Urethrotomy ™ is a simple procedure, ™ it can be performed even under local anesthesia,

™ it can be performed as an outpatient procedure,

™ in most cases open surgery would be an over-treatment.

Therefore, internal urethrotomy performed for proper indications also has a role in the future in the treatment of urethral strictures.
