  Post operatively complications after the perineal urethrostomy in cat males, as obstruction of urethra, narrowing or occlusion of urethra have been documented in general practice. Salvage procedure of prepubic urethrostomy, was applied with high rate of success on 100 cases between 1992-2019. Prepubic urethrostomy is a valuable alternative of the perineal urethrostomy. Because of the risk of having a too short urethra the modified technique involved pubic symphysiotomy and dissection of intrapelvic urethra and relocation of it on the prepubic area.
