Clinical outcomes of 28 cats 12–24 months after urethrostomy

Abstract: Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the long-term clinical outcomes and quality of life of cats having undergone perineal urethrostomy (PU) or prepubic urethrostomy (PPU). Methods This clinical study followed 28 cats (PU, n = 22; PPU, n = 6) that underwent a urethrostomy, with a minimum of 1 year postoperative follow-up. Medical records, pet owner surveys and urologic laboratory tests were used for assessment. Urologic laboratory tests included serum symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA), … Show more

“…This is in contrast to a recent study of 28 cats which reported a higher incidence of UTIs in cats undergoing PPU compared to PU (66.7% vs 22.7%). 5 Urethrostomy stricture has been reported in up to 11% of cats in early reports of PU 11 but does not feature in all case series. This may be due to early reports identifying the primary cause for stricture as inadequate release of the penile urethra from the pelvis , which could then have been avoided in later studies.…”

“…Two previous studies have reported no stricture formation following PPU. 4,5 Similarly, only 1 out of 9 cats undergoing TPU showed evidence of stricture but showed no associated clinical signs. 6 In our study, stoma stricture was noted in one PPU cat and one TPU cat within 4 weeks of surgery and in another PPU cat 9 months after surgery.…”
