to see the benefit of internal urethrotomy before TURP for preventing urethral stricture formation. The study was conducted on two hundred patients undergoing TURP. Half of them had internal uretherotomy at 12 O clock position before the insertion of resectoscope sheath. These patients were followed for 1 year for evidence of urethral stricture formation.
