Abstract
Urethral reconstruction is now considered optimal therapy for most men presenting with symptomatic urethral strictures. The rapid development of innovative tissue transfer techniques over the past decade provides today's reconstructive urologist with a high probability of achieving excellent long-term outcomes after urethroplasty, even in the reoperative setting. Fundamental principles such as accurate initial stricture staging by urethrography, along with critical assessment of both stricture severity and tissue quality during urethroplasty are critical for success. This review illustrates the way in which stricture length, location, severity, and etiology influences the application of reconstructive techniques during contemporary urethroplasty.
