    ABSTRACT: Congenital proximal bulbar stricture in adults is a definite clinical entity and should be looked for in adults with obscure urinary symptoms. The stricture is usually short and can be demonstrated with a voiding cystogram, urethrogram, and urethroscopy. The condition is thought to be due to incomplete rupture of the cloacal membrane at its junction with the urogenital sinus. The stricture can be treated easily by internal urethrotomy and/or urethral dilatation.

    ABSTRACT: This report deals with experience with the method of transurethral incision of urethral strictures under vision in 547 patients involving 662 internal urethrotomies between Nov. 1972 and Aug. 1977. Follow-up examinations showed good results in 79, 3% of the patients. Transurethral incision of urethral strictures can be recommended as the method of choice for the treatment of urethral strictures.

    ABSTRACT: Transurethral urethrotomy under vision with the Sachse urethrotome is a new surgical procedure for the treatment of urethral strictures. The chief advantage of the urethrotome is the fact that the surgeon can cut strictures selectively and accurately under clear vision. The procedure is less painful than blind internal urethrotomy and less extensive cases can be done in the office with the patient under local anesthesia. We report on 36 cases with at least 6 months of followup. In 20 cases the strictures were distal to the prostate and the results were considered good in 16, improved in 3 and a failure in 1. The other 16 cases involved vesical neck contractures and all patients had good results. The technique for urethral strictures distal to the prostate and for vesical neck contractures is described and postoperative treatment is emphasized and discussed.
