Use of buccal mucosa in surgery of the urethra

Abstract

Preliminary experience with the use of buccal mucosa graft for complex urethral repair is reported. The full thickness mucosal graft can be harvested from the inner surface of the cheek or the upper/lower lip/s, used as a patch or tube, alone or combined either with bladder mucosa or with preputial skin when available. This procedure was employed from October 1991 to September 1992 in a total of 8 patients (4 pediatric, 4 adult). Severe primary hypospadias (scrotal, perineal) or cripples were the main indication (5 cases), while severe urethral strictures were corrected in the remaining 3 cases. The only complication was a small fistula in an adult hypospadias cripple, previously operated 9 times.
