Mimi Zhang, Benjamin Carpenter, Richard Bihrle and Matthew J Mellon
Int Arch Urol Complic Volume 1, Issue 2

Abstract: Urethral stricture disease is a complex urologic problem with multiple etiologies and multiple surgical approaches. Although there is no one single technique employed for all types of strictures, buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty (BMU) has proven to be a versatile surgical option for the reconstructive urologist since its first use in the 1940s. Although there are multiple large, single-center experiences with buccal urethroplasty, only recently have short and long term results become available for these grafts. There is a paucity of literature regarding the long-term reconstructive outcomes in patients that have failed previous open reconstructive attempts.
