Abstract

Background. Iatrogenic urethral stricture after renal transplantation is mostly seen after urethral manipulations. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for the safe continuity of the graft functions. In this study, the effect of urethral strictures on graft functions during the post-transplantation period was investigated.
