Abstract

Artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) cuff erosion is a challenging complication traditionally managed with device removal and Foley catheter drainage. Urethral stricture can result secondary to the healing process, delaying AUS reimplantation. In situ urethroplasty (ISU) technique is a definitive repair at the time of device removal. Early results demonstrate a decreased rate of stricture formation compared to traditional management with little additional operative time and no additional complications. Patients undergoing ISU have less delay prior to AUS reimplantation, leading to possible benefit in health-related quality of life (HRQL) outcomes.
