The treatment of traumatic urethral stricture is one of the most challenging situations for the urologist and a very troublesome condition for the patient and has one main aim - to allow the patient to void with a satisfactory stream and control. Every case is to be judged individually to select best options of available modalities. In this article we review. Forty six patients 45 of them were males. The majority age is from 20-34 years, 73.9% are Soldiers, 56.5% had urethral injury as a result of road traffic accidents, fracture of pelvis was seen in 39.1% patients and all had blind or long posterior urethral strictures in dynamic retrograde urethrogram (p > .001), 45.6% were previously manipulated, 94.1% patients of those need another interventions after reconstruction. The success rate of optical urethrotomy and perineal urethroplasty without previous manipulation was 83.3% and 93.75% respectively.
