Free full thickness (patch) graft urethroplasty: long-term follow-up.

Academic Article


  • Thirty-two patients underwent free, full thickness skin (patch) graft urethroplasties between September, 1974, and May, 1978. Sixty-five per cent of the 23 patients available for five-year follow-up had good results from grafts ranging from 3 to 14 cm in length. In patients with good one-year results strictures did not develop during the review period, suggesting the need for only short-term follow-up in this group.
