Abstract:  Mutra marga sankoch (Urethral stricture) is one of the common disorders of urinary tract. So far in modern surgery effective therapy has not been established for the condition. Though gradual urethral dilatation is practised, it shows very low cure rate and recurrences are common. Thousands of years ago Acharya Sushruta had recommended Uttarbasti for the management of such type of urinary tract disorders. This therapy has been re-established after a thorough and scientific clinical study. The study was carried out in the Dept. of Shalya Tantra, Govt. Ayurvedic College and Hostpital, Nanded (Maharashtra). Thirty patients of urethral stricture were selected randomly for the study. After completion of Uttarbasti at the interval of 7 days, the cases were reviewed and the results were compared with conventional surgical procedure and finally it was concluded that Uttarbasti is an excellent therapy for urethral stricture.
