BACKGROUND

Anterior urethral stricture is a pathological fibrous tissue development involving the corpus spongiousum. The objective of the study was to report the outcome of buccal mucosal urethroplasty.

METHODS

From September 2010 to September 2015, The follow up data of 15 patients undergoing single stage urethroplasty were retropectively reviewed. They received buccal mucosa graft for urethroplasty. The patients were prospectively followed for complications and outcome.

RESULTS

Mean age was 53.7±13.6 years. The stricture length ranged from 3 to 6 cm ( mean 4.4±0.8 cm).  The success rate for buccal mucosa urethroplasty (BMU) was 67.7% at 12th month. Three patients presented voiding difficulty in the 3rd month, one in the next 12 months, had urethral restenosis. One patient had fistula formation at 6th month postoperatively. Five patients underwent retreatment procedures such as internal urethrotomy, urethroplasty and/or internal urethrotomy.

CONCLUSIONS

A the buccal mucosa is easy to obtain and handle, therefore, buccal mucosa urethroplasty can be safely and effectively managed outside high volume institutions.
