Zahrawi Group Urology & Gastroenterology Unit had its first case of Optilume for urethral strictures end of October at Mediclinic Welcare hospital, Dubai. The surgery was performed by Dr. Salam Alhasani (Consultant Urologist) using Optilume an exciting and innovative minimally invasive urethral stricture treatment by our Partners Urotronic /Laborie.
The Optilume technology combines drug-coated balloon dilation, to expand or widen the strictured area, with delivering an anti-proliferative drug (paclitaxel) to reduce stricture recurrence and facilitate circumferential drug absorption. The Optilume was developed in response to severe patient and physician dissatisfaction with current stricture also this will end the high recurrence cycle of failed endoscopic stricture management
Congratulations to our Urology & Gastroenterology team, Dr. Salam Alhasani and the Urology team of Mediclinic for achieving such a great milestone.
