Its visual internal urethrotomy
, a scope is passed through urethra
after proper anaesthesia & under all aseptic precautions. Stricturus part is reached, a nick at 12 O'clock position is taken with a cold
knife. A catheter is placed per urethra & kept for a varying period depending on Surgeon & also the recovery. In our institute, I usually keep it for 5-7 days.
Now, healing of this nick is by fibrosis
& this again causes a further stricture.
It is therefore mandatory to do regular urethral dilatation after DVIU at 1 month, 3 month, 6 month & then yearly interval on birthday.
No special arrangement is required during recovery period.
Hope this information is useful to you.
Feel free to ask any further query.
