PURPOSE: We report 18 years' experience of traumatic urethral strictures in boys with emphasis on recurrent strictures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-four boys with pelvic fracture urethral strictures underwent 35 repairs: 23 in the primary group (initial suprapubic cystostomy, but no urethral repair) and 12 in the re-do group (previously failed attempt(s) at urethroplasty elsewhere). The median age at operation and stricture length was 8.4 years and 3 cm in the primary and 9 years and 5.4 cm in the re-do group, respectively. Anastomotic urethroplasty was performed wherever possible, or failing this a substitution urethroplasty. Median follow up was 9 years for primary group and 8 years for re-do group. RESULTS: Primary group: urethroplasty was successful in 22/23, with 10 by perineal and 13 by additional transpubic approach. Two have stress incontinence. Erectile function is unchanged in all and upper tracts are maintained. One had recurrent stricture. Re-do group (12 including 1 recurrence from primary group): anastomotic urethroplasty was done in 5 and substitution urethroplasty in 7. Patients needing substitution had long stricture (>5 cm), stricture extending to distal bulb, or high riding bladder neck. All patients are voiding urethrally. Two patients with substitution required dilatation for early re-stenosis. One appendix substitution required delayed revision. Two have stress incontinence. Erectile function was unaffected. Upper tracts are maintained. CONCLUSIONS: Anastomotic urethroplasty was successful in over 95% of primary cases. In re-do cases it was viable in only 41% of cases; the rest required substitution urethroplasty. Urethral substitution also gave acceptable results.
