Abstract
This article is the text of a state of the art paper presented at the congress of the Societe Francaise d'Urologie in Paris in November 1999. The author expressed his personal Views on the indications advantages and disadvantages of current techniques for the treatment of urethral stricture in men, such as: endoscopic urethrotomy, end-to-end anastomosis, prepuce or oval mucosa free grafts, penile or scrotal pedicled flaps, expansible metal stents and two-stage urethroplasties. Apart from his own personal experience, he bases his discussion on the pathophysiology of healing and, often old data of the literature concerning surgery of the urethra. He critically reviews recent developments: the posterior approach to urethral stricture and temporary stents. Finally, he presents two personal techniques: endoscopic urethroplasty with free graft around a biodegradable stent and the use of a pudendal fascio-cutaneous flap to correct large perineal defects.
