Endoscopic Buccal Mucosal Graft Urethroplasty or Bladder Neck Reconstruction
Study Objectives The current definitive treatment options for urethral stricture disease include endoscopic urethrotomy known as Direct Vision Internal Urethrotomy (DVIU) or open reconstruction known as urethroplasty (1-6). The purpose of this study is to determine feasibility of endoscopic-only repair of urethral stricture or bladder neck contracture using a combination of existing surgical techniques of internal urethrotomy (or bladder neck incision) augmented by buccal mucosal graft.
