The patient was given spinal/general anesthesia, placed in the Lithotomy position and then prepped and draped in the usual standard sterile manner. A cystoscope was then gently placed into the urethral meatus and the length of the urethra inspected. A strictured area was noted in the bulbous urethra amenable to DVIU. The urethral meatus was dilated to 30 French sequentially with Hagrow urethral dilators.

A DVIU scope and sheath were placed into the urethra and the stricture was incised under direct vision using a clod Collins knife. The entire depth of the stricture was incised until consistent bleeding occurred from the site. After the DVIU an 17 French cystoscope was passed beyond the strictured area and the remainder of the urethra was inspected. No further lesions were noted. A general cystoscopy was performed.

The veru montanum was in normal position and the lobes of the prostate where identified. The bladder neck and trigone were noted to be normal. The ureteral orifices were noted bilaterally to efflux clear urine. A systematic inspection of the bladder was completed. There were no obvious lesions. The bladder was drained and the scope was removed under direct vision.

An 18 French Foley catheter was placed without difficulty and secured to the leg. Patient was then awaken from anesthesia without complications and transferred to the Recovery Room (RR). The patient arrived to the RR in stable condition and without complications.
