Urethral reconstructive surgery has always been challenging part for urologist since the dawn of our speciality.
The urethral strictures and defects in development of the urethra (hypospadias and epispadias) are the main issues for urologists, dealing with lower urinary tract reconstructions.
A urethral stricture is a scarred or hardened area that causes narrowing of the caliber of the urethra, and is the commonest problem encountered by adult urology reconstructive surgeons.The stricture eventually reduces or obstructs the flow of urine out of the bladder, making it difficult to urinate. A urethral stricture can occur anywhere in the urethra. Urethroplasty is a surgical procedure conducted to correct scar tissue blockage of the urethra called urethral stricture.
Urethroplasty is a surgical procedure for urethral reconstruction to treat urethral stricture. Urethroplasty can be performed by 2 methods; primary repair which involves complete excision of the narrowed part of the urethra, where proximal and distal patent parts are then rejoined. The second method of Urethroplasty utilizes tissue transfer of flaps or free graft technique. In this method, tissue is grafted from genital skin, or buccal mucosa and is used to enlarge or replace the strictured (narrowed) segment of the urethra.
The abundance of methods and continuing development of new approaches to the problem prove the complexity of it. In this book some of the leading experts in lower urinary reconstructions present their views and experience in that field, together with practical tips and tricks. The book is an excellent source of information for those who are already dealing with urethral surgery, and also an invaluable companion for urologists in training or those who want to dedicate themselves to this great sub-specialty.
