The vascularized skin island urethroplasty: its role and results in urethral stricture management.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We report 11 vascularized island skin flap urethroplasties. Results appear to be excellent when the procedure is used for strictures of the pendulous urethra. Use of vascularized skin flap urethroplasties for the repair of bulbar and membranous strictures has been complicated by pseudodiverticula and stone formation, and in this portion of the urethra the technique probably should be reserved for cases in which local factors mitigate against alternative 1-stage procedures.
