Seventy-two patients suffering from urethral stricture were treated at our clinic between May 1975 and December 1980. The clinical findings are reported. The common causes of the urethral stricture were trauma and infections, but iatrogenic (postoperative) cases have recently increased. Optical urethrotomy provided greater dilatation of the urethral stricture than the internal urethrotomy done using a Meisonneuve internal urethrotome. Optical urethrotomy is recommended for the treatment of urethral strictures because of the high success rate and safety.
