Abstract :

 Background: Balanitis Xerotic obliterans is a dermatological condition affecting the  genitalia  and  associated  with  chronic,  progressive, sclerosing inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology. Stricture associated with BXO are  resistant  to  all  types  of treatment and recurrence is the most common complication.

Material and  Methods: A prospective cohort study of 40   patients was performed,  who were suspected clinically to have urethral stricture along with BXO and proved on investigations.

Results: 38  patients  underwent single stage dorsal onlay buccal mucosa substitution urethroplasty and 2 patients underwent two stage buccal mucosa urethroplasty. Overall, success rate of our study was 90%. Pan uretheral stricture was the most common finding proved  intra operatively and out of 40 patients 4 patients had recurrence.  

Conclusion: Buccal mucosa graft urethroplasty is the most versatile surgical option which can treat stricture of almost all type associated with bxo with good success rates.
