The Memokath 044 Urethra stent is used for temporary treatment of patients with recurrent urethral strictures of the bulbous urethra. Insertion of the Memokath 044 Urethra is quick, has very few and only minor side effects and an immediate effect on symptoms. It is therefore suited for day-case patients. The whole procedure normally takes about 30-45 minutes and the stent does not interfere with normal bladder control.The stent is designed to remain endoluminal in the urethra long enough to allow complete urothelial re-growth and stabilisation of the urethral lumen in the previously strictured area, and the urethral lumen remains patent after removal of the Memokath. The stent is easy and simple to insert and can just as easily be removed, as it is not prone to encrustation or tissue in-growth.
