PMID:  22512968     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Reconstruction of large urethral defects is a complex problem for which no standardized surgical guidelines exist due to the lack of clinical trials demonstrating definitively the superiority of one technique over another. AlloDerm has been used in other surgical specialties with success, however, its utility in urologic surgery and, more specifically, for urethral reconstruction has been limited. In this case report, we demonstrate its application in a single-staged closure of a significant anterior urethral defect following distal penile necrosis secondary to an extruded penile prosthesis in a diabetic patient.
