(11) In the present study, urethral stricture was defined as a Qmax <10 mL/s on uroflowmetry and the visibility of the stricture site on urethroscopy or urethrography. The rate of Qmax <10 mL/s was 6.06% in group A and 15.15% in group B by uroflowmetry.

However, in the case of accessory or hyposplastic urethras or non-communication a retrograde urethrography may be required.
Voiding urethrography of distal urethra shows ballooning of contrast within foreskin caused by stenosis of its distal opening.
Results: Retrograde urethrography showed 100% sensitivity, 97.78% positive predictive value and 97.78% diagnostic accuracy.
Double contrast cystography and/or retrograde urethrography may identify radiolucent stones in bladder or urethra.
One week preoperatively and 2, 4 and 8 weeks postoperatively, all the animals underwent urethroscopy and urethrography. At 2, 4 and 8 weeks postoperatively, two animals were randomly selected and killed, and the urethra was cut off for pathological examination.
A retrograde urethrography was taken to visualise both urethral tracts.
After screening, uroflowmetry, retrograde urethrography and cystometry were performed in selected patients.
Preoperative studies included retrograde urethrography, voiding cystography, and urethroscopy.
The most commonly used methods to characterize the lesions preoperatively are antegrade cystourethrography and retrograde urethrography. Pelvic computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are also helpful in determining the depth of the lesion and bony structures.
