enEnglish
Urethral Diseases definition: Pathological processes involving the URETHRA.
urethra disorder definition: condition in which there is a deviation from or interruption of the normal structure or function of the urethra, the membranous canal that conveys urine from the bladder to the exterior of the body.
Urethral Fistula definition: An abnormal communication between the urethra and another organ or anatomic site.
Urethral Neoplasms definition: Cancer or tumors of the URETHRA. Benign epithelial tumors of the urethra usually consist of squamous and transitional cells. Primary urethral carcinomas are rare and typically of squamous cells. Urethral carcinoma is the only urological malignancy that is more common in females than in males.
Urethral Obstruction definition: Partial or complete blockage in any part of the URETHRA that can lead to difficulty or inability to empty the URINARY BLADDER. It is characterized by an enlarged, often damaged, bladder with frequent urges to void.
Urethral Obstruction definition: Blockage of the normal flow of urine in the urethra.
Urethral Stricture definition: Narrowing of any part of the URETHRA. It is characterized by decreased urinary stream and often other obstructive voiding symptoms.
Urethral Stricture definition: Narrowing of the lumen of the urethra.
Urethral Pain definition: A painful sensation in the urethra.
BOUGIE, UROLOGICAL definition: A urethral dilator is a device that consists of a slender hollow or solid instrument made of metal, plastic, or other suitable material in a cylindrical form and in a range of sizes and flexibilities. The device may include a mechanism to expand the portion of the device in the urethra and indicate the degree of expansion on a dial. It is used to dilate the urethra. This generic type of device includes the mechanical urethral dilator, urological bougies, metal or plastic urethral sound, urethrometer, filiform, and filiform follower.
Bougies, Urethra definition: Bougies designed to explore (e.g., to search for stones) and/or dilate the urethra. These manual, handheld devices are typically hollow metallic or plastic cylinders that often have a tapered working end. Some urethral bougies permit the introduction of an extremely slender solid tube (a filiform) through their lumen for use as a guide or for dilation of very thin strictures.
CATHETER, URETHRAL definition: A urological catheter and accessories is a flexible tubular device that is inserted through the urethra and used to pass fluids to or from the urinary tract. This generic type of device includes radiopaque urological catheters, ureteral catheters, urethral catheters, coude catheters, balloon retention type catheters, straight catheters, upper urinary tract catheters, double lumen female urethrographic catheters, disposable ureteral catheters, male urethrographic catheters, and urological catheter accessories including ureteral catheter stylets, ureteral catheter adapters, ureteral catheter holders, ureteral catheter stylets, ureteral catheterization trays, and the gastro-urological irrigation tray (for urological use).
Catheters, Urinary, Urethral definition: Urinary catheters designed for introduction into the urinary tract through the urethra and usually advanced until their distal tip is located in the urinary bladder. These catheters are mostly used for urinary drainage, irrigation, urethral dilatation, contrast injection, hemostasis, to collect reliable urine specimens, for urodynamic evaluation, for radiographic studies (e.g., cystograms), to assess residual urine, and for drug administration.
DILATOR, URETHRAL definition: A urethral dilator is a device that consists of a slender hollow or solid instrument made of metal, plastic, or other suitable material in a cylindrical form and in a range of sizes and flexibilities. The device may include a mechanism to expand the portion of the device in the urethra and indicate the degree of expansion on a dial. It is used to dilate the urethra. This generic type of device includes the mechanical urethral dilator, urological bougies, metal or plastic urethral sound, urethrometer, filiform, and filiform follower.
Stents, Urethral definition: Stents designed for deployment into the section of the urinary tract between the bladder and the external meatus (i.e., the urethra), including the prostatic, membranous, bulbar, and penile sections of the urethra, to provide support for and/or maintain patency within the duct. These devices typically include metallic self-expanding stents, either compressed metallic stents that open by themselves as soon as they are released or shape-memory stents manufactured from an alloy combining nickel and titanium (i.e., nitinol) that expands in response to body temperature. Some of these stents include radiopaque markers for accurate positioning. Urethral stents are typically deployed using endoscopic procedures; they are used mainly to treat recurrent urethral strictures and prostatic obstructions caused by diseases such as benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatic carcinoma.
Biopsy of Urethra definition: Removal of tissue from the urethra for microscopic examination.
Gland of Littre definition: Any of the glands located at the wall of the urethra of male mammals that produce and secrete mucus, a major component of semen.
Urethral Hemorrhage definition: Bleeding originating from the urethra.
UrethralRoute definition: Urethral
Urethral Carcinoma definition: Malignant epithelial neoplasm arising from the urethra (lower urinary tract).
Urethral Infection definition: A bacterial, viral, or fungal infectious process affecting the urethra.
Suppository, urethral definition: Suppository, urethral
Urethral Leiomyoma definition: A benign smooth muscle neoplasm arising from the urethra. It is characterized by the presence of spindle cells with cigar-shaped nuclei, interlacing fascicles, and a whorled pattern.
URETHRAL definition: Administration into the urethra. (FDA)
Intraurethral Route of Administration definition: Administration of a drug directly into the urethra.
Insertion, urethral definition: Insertion, urethral
instillation, urethral definition: Instillation, urethral
Injection, urethral definition: Injection, urethral
Urethral Perforation definition: A rupture in the wall of the urethra due to traumatic or pathologic processes.
