untitled Urethral Stricture Homeopathic Remedies and TreatmentThe urethra is the opening that allows the urine to leave the bladder. Urethra has a sphincter mechanism that holds urine inside the bladder. When urine fills in the bladder, there is both voluntary and involuntary control to open the urethra to allow the urine to come out. In men, it is a thin tube-like structure that starts from the lower opening of the bladder, traverses the entire length of the penis. In women, it is a short opening coming off lower opening of the bladder and between 2.5 to 4 cms length.
Urethral stricture refers to narrowing of the urethra for any other reason, whether or not it actually impacts the flow of urine out of the bladder. Urethral stricture caused by injury, instrumentation, infection and some non-inflammatory causes of urethritis or by the formation of scar tissue. Scar tissue can be the result of many factors.
Causes of urethral stricture: It can be caused by many factors. It is mostly affected by males than females. Young boys who have hypospadias surgery (procedure to correct the underdeveloped urethra). And men who have penile implants have the higher chance of getting urethral stricture.
A straddle injury is the common type of cause of urethral
stricture. Examples of straddle injury are getting hit by cycle bar, falling
and affecting the scrotum. Other specific causes including pelvic fracture,
catheter insertion, radiation and surgery performed on the prostate.
Urethral stricture after blunt trauma can be divided into,
  • Pelvic fracture associated urethral disruption
    occurs in the severe pelvic fracture.

    urethra against pubic symphysis, causing a crush injury.

Tumors located in close proximity of urethra, untreated
