Why whould a meatotomy be necessay (complete vertical cleft of the glans)?
Dear Edservih, Thanks for your question.
A meatotomy is a simple surgical procedure for relieving a urethral obstruction to urine or semen flow caused by scar tissue at the tip of the penile urethra. This narrowing is called meatal stenosis. Symptoms associated with meatal stenosis could include a curved thin stream, penile pain with urination or can be asymptotic. Scar tissue inside the urethra is called a urethral stricture and can have the same symptoms.
