Question: Urethral strictures

 dll7198 - Sat Aug 18, 2007 2:44 am

Is there any evidence that betadine contamination of the urethra during self catheterization causes urethral strictures?

User avatar Hi Dll7198,

I'm not aware of betadine causing strictures. I did a brief literature search and did not find this described either.

Best wishes.
