“Transpubic urethroplasty” is the term generally applied to the operative correction of post-traumatic strictures of the membranous urethra, particularly those following pelvic fractures; thus the term “pelvic fracture stricture” is a useful specific descriptive term. There are three basic types of pelvic fracture stricture: strictures without urethral disruption, in which case the stricture behaves much the same as other “sphincter strictures”; strictures where there has been urethral disruption but no distraction of the two ends; and strictures in which there has been urethral distraction to a considerable degree, or which are associated with other complications.
