Abstract

Severe urethral stricture disease as an isolated entity can be a management dilemma. In the patient described here, this problem was associated with prior external-beam radiation and cryosurgical ablation of the prostate, and a functional artificial urethral sphincter (AUS) had been placed. An attempt to relieve partial urinary obstruction while preserving AUS function led to successful balloon dilation proximal to the sphincter cuff.
