In rabbits, urethrotomy is used for removal of any tissue/material causing intraluminal or intramural partial or total urethral blockage. This technique is commonly used for urethral calculi removal. Urethral calculi cause discomfort, pain, dysuria and hematuria. Total urethral obstruction may result in post-renal kidney failure.
