Abstract

The 5-year follow-up of the implantation of a UroLume double urethral stent in 2 patients with recurrent, post-traumatic urethral strictures is presented. The double implantation for each patient was done by the long extension of the urethral lesion. Only 1 patient presented a single phosphatic concretion in the implantation area during the extended follow- up. Urinary flow races remained absolutely normal. Sexual life was unaffected. This simple modification of the UroLume implantation may offer effective treatment for extended and recurrent posterior urethral strictures in young sexually active men, for almost 5 years without early or delayed complications of clinical relevance.
