The most common site of anterior urethral stricture is the bulbar urethra. The etiology of these strictures could be either idiopathic (40%), iatrogenic (35%), inflammatory (10%), or traumatic (15%) causes. Several techniques and approaches with/without buccal mucosal graft have been described. We report a modification to the standard anastomotic urethroplasty, wherein following excision of a 2.0-cm bulbar urethral stricture, we performed a roof strip anastomosis followed by ventral buccal mucosal augmentation urethroplasty.
