The aim of our study was to assess the feasibility of performing optical urethrotomy for urethral stricture disease under local anaesthesia. A total of 33 patients with radiologically proven urethral stricture underwent optical urethrotomy by a single operator under local anaesthesia. Of these patients, 23 (70%) had stricture involving the corpora(More)
