Urethral Stricture Disease

Urethral stricture refers to any narrowing of the urethra for any reason whether or not it actually impacts the flow of urine out of the bladder. 

Any inflammation of urethra can result in scarring, which then can lead to a stricture or a narrowing of the urethra. Trauma, infection, tumors, surgeries, or any other cause of scarring may lead to urethral narrowing or stricture.  Mechanical narrowing of the urethra without scar formation (developmental causes or prostate enlargement) can also cause urethral stricture. Urethral stricture is significantly more common in men and boys compared to women and girls.
This condition is considered rare in females. Injury or damage to the urethra can heal with scar tissue that may cause a stricture.  There are various types of injury that can damage the urethra. For example, an injury may occur during medical procedures to look into your bladder via your urethra; radiotherapy treatment may damage your urethra; a fall astride on to the frame of a bike can cause damage.  Infection of your urethra is another cause – for examples Sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia. Infection as a complication of the long-term use of a tube (catheter to drain your bladder.Infection may cause inflammation in the tissues in and around your urethra.
