Methods: A case-control study with secondary data of all patients treated and undergoing operative management of the anterior-posterior urethral stricture in Dr. Soetomo Hospital from January 2013 to December 2017. Diabetes mellitus, hypertension, urine culture, and previous history of sachse were as independent variables. The data described by the distribution table and continued by Chi-square test using the SPSS application. P-value <0.05 showed significant. Results: Total of 117 samples divided into 53 samples as case groups. The mean age was 44.58 ± 18.08. Most of the samples were male (94.9%), and 41.9% had previous sachse history. Only 13.7% had diabetes mellitus and 27.4% in hypertension. Iatrogenic as most common aetiology and pars membranous was the most common location of stricture. Positive urine culture occurs in 53% of the sample. Mean length of the stricture was 1.43 ± 1.27 cm. The recurrence rate was 6.98 ± 2.67 months. There were significant relationships between diabetes mellitus (OR=6.608; p=0.002), urine culture (OR=15.551; p<0.001), and previous sachse surgery history (p<0.001) with the recurrence of urethral stricture.
