Gene context of Urethral Stricture

  • Use of cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor for prevention of urethral strictures secondary to transurethral resection of the prostate [19].
  • At 1 year of follow-up, a urethral stricture had been diagnosed in 8.3% of all cases; in particular, in 17% and 0% of cases in the no COX inhibitor group and COX-2 inhibitor group, respectively [19].
  • CONCLUSIONS: We suggest that limited postoperative treatment with a COX-2 inhibitor can effectively prevent post-TURP urethral stricture development by specifically interfering with the inflammatory processes that can precede scar formation [19].
  • Eighty-four urethral stricture patients and 73 controls were studied prospectively over a 6 months period in Tikur Anbessa Hospital from April to August 2000 [20].
  • Re: Congenital bulbar urethral stricture occurring in a father and son [21].
