Abstract: 
Introduction: Many valid option modalities are available for the management of urethral stricture disease (USD), such as internal urethrotomy which has the success rates of 33%– 60%. The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of holmium: YAG (Ho: YAG) laser urethrotomy (HLU). Methods: One hundred thirty-eight patients with urethral stricture with the mean age of 48± 3. 03 years old treated by HLU from March 2011 to August 2017. The main purpose of this investigation was to evaluate mean operation time, stricture recurrence rate and post-operation Qmax and complications of transurethral HLU. Results: The most common cause of USD was trauma in 82 (59. 4%) patients. Mean laser operation time, mean hospital stay and mean postoperative duration of catheterization were 23. 08 ± 9. 1 minutes, 19. 02 ± 10. 7 hours and 10. 3 ± 1. 05 days respectively. The mean Qmax was 8. 3 ± 2. 07 mL/s before surgery and 16 ± 3. 1 mL/s afterward. At the end of 12 months follow-up, a total of 37 (26. 8%) patients developed recurrence of the stricture. Patients with posterior, longer urethral strictures and previous history of interventions have more recurrence rate of the stricture. Conclusion: HLU is minimally invasive and seems to be an effective and safe management option for primary, short, urethral strictures. The hospital stay is remarkably short and complications are negligible.
