Objective: Evaluation of the results of dorsolateral buccal mucosal augmentation urethroplasty in patients with long- segment anterior urethral strictures.

Materials and Methods: This prospective study included 28 patients with anterior urethral strictures. Inclusion criteria were: non traumatic non-obliterative anterior urethral strictures more than 2 cms long who were scheduled for (BMG) urethroplasty. Preoperative IPSS IIEF scores were filled by the patients and Uroflowmetry was done for all patients. Patients were followed for a minimum of one year after urethroplasty (3, 6 and 12 months). Both urethroplasty and sexual outcomes were evaluated.

Results: Mean age of the patients was 41.16±13.55 years. Mean length of the urethral stricture was 4.53±0.69. Mean duration of operation was 172.0±6.61 minutes. The mean Qmax pre operative was 6.64±1.79, and the mean Qmax at 3m, 6m, and 1y post operative was 21.4±2.17, 20.12±2.33, 19.08±2.12. The mean IPSS score pre operative was 26.84±2.01, and the mean IPSS score at 3m, 6m, and 1y post operative was 4.04±1.01, 5.64±1.23, 4.79±1.19.The mean IIEF score pre operative was 28.32±1.6, and the mean IIEF score at 3m, 6m, and 1y post operative was 26.16±1.67, 27.88±1.76, 27.5±1.12. Two patients developed recurrent urethral stricture which was corrected by VIU and included in the dilatation program. Three patients had wound infection that was managed conservatively.

Conclusion: Dorsolateral buccal mucosal augmentation urethroplasty is a surgical option that can be used in the treatment of long segment anterior urethral strictures with high success and low complication rates.

Keywords: Anterior urethral stricture, buccal mucosa, dorsolateral onlay, urethroplasty.
