Abstract:Using free mucosal grafts for urethroplasty is a simple and safe method in the interdisciplinary treatment of urethral strictures. Donor site morbidity within the first 3 weeks after operation is noticeable, but tolerable measured by a validated Quality of Life-tool. Six months after the operation, perfusion and oxygenation of the former graft harvest site are equal to the contralateral unoperated mucosa.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
