1) In 1984, Auguste Nelaton invented the first vulcanized rubber catheter for urethral dilatation, now known as the Nelaton catheter.
The Nelaton catheter was used to assess the distal end of the stricture from the external urethral meatus.
The surgery was considered successful if there were no subjective symptoms; other successful indicators were: a normal postoperative uroflowmetry, normal urethra via the RGU and MCU, and if the Nelaton catheter could be passed into the urethra without obstruction.
The location of the stricture was determined by Nelaton catheter calibration.
