Preparation for Optilume urethral dilatation

  • Cystoscopy of the urethra is performed prior to surgery to allow or confirm the diagnosis of stenosis of the urethra.
  • Perineal ultrasound is necessary (radiological examination by injection of contrast medium into the urethra).
  • Urethrography can also be proposed to evaluate the size of the stenosis and its length.
  • A urine test is performed before the procedure to check for sterility or treat a possible infection.
  • Anticoagulant or antiplatelet medications should usually be stopped a few days before surgery.
  • Aspirin treatment can sometimes be continued at a low dose.
  • In prevention of an infection, it is possible to receive a dose of antibiotic at the beginning of the intervention.
  • The patient must be accompanied as there will be preoperative sedation.

    Cancellation of appointment:

    To ensure the smooth running of the clinic and a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and our staff, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for the cancellation of a consultation, 5 working days in advance for a surgery at the office and 21 working days in advance for a major surgery. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
