One-stage skin graft urethroplasty in anterior middle urethra: a new procedure

J Urol 1984; 131: 660-663.

A new procedure with the use of a free skin patch graft for the surgical treatment of strictures located in the mid anterior urethra is described. To avoid the formation of a urethral diverticulum, the skin graft is sutured dorsally rather than ventrally and subsequently is fixed on the tunica albuginea of the corpora, which support the patch. We describe 4 different procedures according to the extent of the stenosis and the degree of involvement of the spongiosum tissue by the inflammatory process. The preliminary results obtained in a small series of 6 patients are presented.
