Jalil Hosseini, Ali Tayebi-azar, Amir Hossein Rahavian, Saleh Ghiasy




Nowadays there is not any specific technique for repairing the recurrent urethral stricture with retained urethral stent. We report a 41 years old man with history of end to end urethroplasty 11 years ago that developed with urethral stricture and refused redo urethroplastyso managed by Uventa stent that fail six month after insertion and treated by end to end urethroplasty with complete excision of the obstructed urethra and stent and surrounding periurethral fibrosis. End to end urethroplasty post Uventa stent stricture is a viable option with good postoperative outcomes.
