Step by step

Bladder approach

Working sheath

Introduce

Introduce and advance a working sheath, with an obturator inserted, into the urethra. The working sheath, meatus and the urethra should be thoroughly lubricated before.

Stricture formation

Care must be taken not to injure the urethra while inserting the working sheath as this may result in urethral stricture formation. Thoroughly lubricating the meatus, urethra and instruments minimizes the risk of urethra stricture formation.
