Abstract

  1. Top of page
  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The purpose of this review is to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of intermittent self-dilatation versus no intervention after urethral stricture surgery in the management of urethral stricture disease in men.

The primary comparison is:

1. intermittent self-dilatation versus no intervention.

If intermittent self-dilatation is found to be effective for improving symptoms and health-related quality of life or reducing the risk of recurrent stricture, then secondary comparisons will be:

2. one regimen of intermittent self-dilatation (e.g. catheterisation frequency or duration of programme) versus another;

3. one device to perform intermittent self-dilatation versus another.
