perineal urethrostomy

Also found in: Acronyms.

per·i·ne·al u·re·thros·to·my

formation of a permanent opening into the bulbous portion of the urethra through a perineal skin incision.


creation of a permanent opening for the urethra in the perineum.

antepubic urethrostomy
anastomosis of the urethra to skin of the abdominal wall. May be performed in the male or female, usually because of trauma to the urethra.
ischial urethrostomy
see perineal urethrostomy (below).
perineal urethrostomy
one performed in male cats in the perineal region, between the anus and scrotum. Called also ischial urethrostomy, Wilson-Harrison technique.
prepubic urethrostomy
the opening is created on the ventral surface of the abdomen, cranial to the pubis.
scrotal urethrostomy
one performed in dogs at the level of the scrotum, usually for chronic cystic calculi, penile amputation or traumatic strictures. After removal of the scrotum and testicles, the urethra is opened and sutured to the skin, creating a permanent opening.
Wilson-Harrison urethrostomy

Due to the infiltrating pattern and the diffusion of the disorder and to the presence of multiple nonhealing lesions, leading, respectively, to difficulty at micturition and local infection, an en bloc resection of the penis and prepuce was decided; the eventuality of a penile retroversion or a permanent perineal urethrostomy was considered according to the intraoperatory findings and the degree of infiltration of the penis body [14].
At palpation the penile body was extensively thickened suggesting amputation as proximal as possible: so penile retroversion was excluded and perineal urethrostomy was performed.
The surgical treatment of the disorder was achieved with an en bloc extensive resection of penis and prepuce without penile retroversion as previously described [14] associated with a permanent perineal urethrostomy.
The corpus cavernosum penis is closed and secured to local fascia and subcutaneous tissue, and a permanent perineal urethrostomy is performed.
9%) patients were treated by perineal urethrostomy.
In the first decade (1972-1982) the mainstay of management was intermittent urethral dilatation with metallic bougie, while in fractured pelvis urethral distraction defects, railroad catheterisation was the initial management followed by dilatation, or perineal urethrostomy which also followed dilatation.
However, urethral dilatation, perineal urethrostomy and railroad catheterisation for traumatic posterior urethral stricture continued.
During this period, DVIU was the commonest operation done for stricture urethra and also 151 patients underwent EPA urethroplasty, and also BMG was introduced during this period which replaced the option of perineal urethrostomy for anterior urethral stricture.
