Preparation for a urethral meatatomy or a meatoplasty

  • A cystoscopy is sometimes performed before surgery to allow or to confirm the diagnosis of urethral stenosis.
  • Urine analysis and culture are carried out before the intervention, to check for sterility or to treat a possible infection.
  • A general blood test is sometimes necessary, especially to study the kidneys’ function.
  • Anticoagulant medications should usually be stopped a few days before the procedure. Aspirin therapy can sometimes be continued at low doses.
  • In preventing an infection, the patient is likely to receive a dose of antibiotics before the procedure.
  • It is best to be accompanied, because of the sedative medication that can be taken before (eg. Anxious patients).
