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.
