Balloon Dilatation (Stricture Urethra)

What is it?

Balloon Dilatation is another simple endoscopic surgical technique to treat the stricture urethra patients.In this the stricture part is dilated or widened by the shearing force of the dilated balloon placed across the stricture.

How it is done?

This procedure can be done as an outpatient and under local anaesthesia.But the success rates are same as like other minimally invasive surgical options for the stricture urethra.
