Stricture urethra

This 42 years male undergone bmg urethroplasty in 2012 for bulbar urthral stricture(as per his reports).He undergone dviu in 2013,2014,2015,2016,2018,now in January 2020 he presented to us  with acute urinary retention for which we have done spc.recent Aug to manage this case?

    He was on irregular self dilatation regime.

    It is essential to delineate proximal bulbar urethra. Need better contrast study if you want to revise urethroplasty.

    Repeat RGU + MCU

    Is there any BXO changes?
    Any erectile dysfunction?

    Dear Dr Tikenjit

    The history clearly suggests a Failed Urethroplasty 
    Multiple VIU 
    Patient Merits a redo Urethroplasty 
    This is a long stricture 
    Irrespective of latetest imaging ,dorsal approach may be needed
    Need to look at the obliterated segment on MCU

    Thank u question is what is success rate for such multiple viu? should redo urethroplasty done after 2nd viu failure?now should we do stage procedure for this case?

    I will post mcu picture once patient come back..thank u sir

    ASU is not properly delineating complete stricture length. Its obvious its long segment. 
    Plan is to do redo BMG urethroplasty. 
    Will MCU change the plan an anyway ?

    It’s basically a urethroplasty failure,multiple DVIU does more harm than good, same goes about so-called self calibration.

    What he needs now is redo BMG urethroplasty.
    Further ( future, in case of further failure)options can be redo staged urethroplasty.
    Last resort perineal urethrostomy.

    Proximal bulbar urethra appears to be reasonable good. Mid bulbar urethra appears to be obliterated. He needs redo Dorsal Onlay Grafting. During redo DOG I excise the previously placed graft to create bed for new graft. If mid bulbar urethra is totally obliterated, it is better to excise short segment and then do DOG which then becomes very easy.

    Jaydeep and Lalit,  

    Why not ventral onlay?
    Already operated case,  there will be excess fibrosis and issues related to vascularity. 
    Ventral is less traumatic with similar outcomes.  With do not require much dissection,  so less damage to tissues and vascularity.

    For proximal bulbar urethra I find VOD very difficult. It is ideal for mid & distal bulbar urethra. 

    As it is operated case, it is unlikely that bulbospongiosus will be healthy: so for ventral graft healthy bed will not be available. Hence it is likely to fail. 
    And if mid-bulbar urethra is totally obliterated, I will prefer to excise short segment.

    This is a Obliterative recurrence 

    Long stricture

    This Is precious surgery 
    We have sen few of this patients over time 
    Patient is on SPC means there is a almost obliterative stricture 
    Augmenting one wall may less likely Give long term cure  
    Mobilse uerthra circumferentially ,incise dorsally 
    We have performed Dorsal BMG with Ventral Pedicled flap to augment the obliterative plate  .
    The native sponge is used to cover the penciled flap decreasing the risk of Diverticulum formation .
    Good results -Long term 

    However if there is urethral plate and only augmentation is needed
    Dorsal approach would serve a better choice  for this stricture.

    Recurrent stricture Dorsal BMG with vetral if need be .

     Thank u Sir,what is ur criteria to decide between single stage vs multiple stage procedure.
