|Title:||[Diagnosis of urethral stenosis and follow-up after Urethroplasty].|
|Citation:||Arch. Esp. Urol..2016 Sep;(69)7:416-22|
|Abstract:||This article presents a review of the different tests used for the evaluation and follow-up of urethral strictures. Because there is no consensus on how to assess urethral pathology, we reviewed each of the next follow-up tests: questionnaires, uroflowmetry, ultrasound, urethroscopy, urethrogram, CT scan and MRI, outlining their benefits and limitations in the diagnosis and follow-up of urethral stricture. Urethrogram and urethroscopy are the most commonly used tests, as they are those that give us more information on the evaluation of stenosis and for surgery planning. Questionnaires and uroflowmetry play a key role in the follow-up of these patients. Ultrasonography has high sensitivity and specificity for evaluating the spongiofibrosis, however it is not done routinely. The CT/MRI is recommended in the evaluation of pelvic trauma associated with fractures.|
