Abstract

The current appeal of patch graft urethroplasty is not without some justification. It is a one-stage operation requiring only a brief period of hospitalization, and if the skin is taken from the penis (as it was in every one of our cases), the neourethral formed is free of hair. It is a versatile procedure that is farily simple to do and has a high sucess rate, yet it can be redone quite easily if failure does occur. The operation is particularly well suited for the common short stricture of the urethral bulb in which there is abundant well-vascularized tissue for coverage. In fact, the tunica albuginea can often be closed primarily over the patch in this area, providing a particularly smooth well-supported urethra resistant to the development of sacculations.
