PurposeComplete urethral replacement using unseeded matrices has been proposed as a possible therapy in cases of congenital or acquired anomalies producing significant defects. Tissue regeneration involves fibrin deposition, re-epithelialization, and remodeling that are limited by the size of the defect. Scar formation occurs because of an inability of native cells to regenerate over the defect before fibrosis takes place. We investigated the maximum potential distance of normal native tissue… Expand
Clinical challenges in tissue-engineered urethral reconstruction
TLDR
Over 300 techniques are known for urethral stricture and hypospadias repair, illustrating the complexity of these conditions and indicates the lack of a gold standard procedure. Expand
Engineered acellular collagen scaffold for endogenous cell guidance, a novel approach in urethral regeneration.
TLDR
Tissue engineered a novel cell free tubular collagen based scaffold and used it as a urethral graft in a rabbit model and described an off-the-shelf and cost-effective product with comparable surgical outcome to the cellular grafts. Expand
Tissue-engineered autologous urethras for patients who need reconstruction: an observational study
TLDR
Tissue-engineered tubularised urethras can be engineered and remain functional in a clinical setting for up to 6 years and showed that the engineered grafts had developed a normal appearing architecture by 3 months after implantation. Expand
Autologous granulation tissue tubes for replacement of urethral defects: An experimental study in male rabbits.
TLDR
An autologous granulation tissue tube grown subcutaneously could be successfully used to repair urethral defects of 1 cm in male rabbits and showed better results than acellular matrix for tubularized urethroplasty compared with previous studies. Expand
In-vivo performance of high-density collagen gel tubes for urethral regeneration in a rabbit model.
TLDR
High-density collagen gel tubes may be clinically useful as an effective treatment of congenital and acquired urethral pathologies and spontaneous regrowth of urothelium could be demonstrated in all grafts. Expand
Tubularized Urethral Replacement Using Tissue-Engineered Peritoneum-Like Tissue in a Rabbit Model
TLDR
Serial urethrography indicated a wide urethral caliber without stricture formation in animals implanted with cell-seeded matrices, while all animals of the control group developed stricture. Expand
Cell-Seeded Acellular Artery for Reconstruction of Long Urethral Defects in a Canine Model

TLDR
Preclinical evidence is provided that the ADSC-seeded arterial matrix can be used as a tubularized scaffold in the reconstruction of 3 cm long urethral defect in a male canine model and remodels and regenerates normal-appearing urethal tissue layers over time. Expand
Cell-seeded tubularized scaffolds for reconstruction of long urethral defects: a preclinical study.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that long tissue-engineered tubularized urethral segments may be used for urethroplasty in patients by exploring the feasibility of engineering clinically relevant long urethras for surgical reconstruction in a canine preclinical model. Expand
Augmentation of the insufficient tissue bed for surgical repair of hypospadias using acellular matrix grafts: A proof of concept study
TLDR
This study supports the anti-inflammatory and tissue-integrative nature of non-crosslinked acellular matrices and provides proof-of-principle for incorporating a Cellular matrix grafts during surgical procedures, such as in primary complex hypospadias repair. Expand
Penile urethra replacement with autologous cell‐seeded tubularized collagen matrices
TLDR
The urethrograms showed that animals implanted with cell‐seeded matrices maintained a wide urethral calibre without strictures, while implantation of tubularized collagen matrices without cells leads to poor tissue development and stricture formation. Expand

Urethral replacement using cell seeded tubularized collagen matrices.
TLDR
Results show that collagen matrices seeded with cells form normal urethral tissue can be used for tubularized replacement, whereas tubularization collagen matrix alone without cells lead to poor tissue formation and strictures. Expand
A novel inert collagen matrix for hypospadias repair.
TLDR
The use of a collagen inert matrix appears to be beneficial in patients who have undergone previous hypospadias repair and who may lack sufficient genital skin for reconstruction. Expand
Experimental and clinical experience using tissue regeneration for urethral reconstruction
TLDR
The laboratory has developed an acellular collagen matrix that has shown adequate urothelial-cell epithelialization and urethral-tissue regeneration both experimentally and clinically and may soon be tried clinically. Expand
Buccal mucosal grafts for urethral reconstruction.
TLDR
Buccal mucosa is an excellent source of graft material for urethral replacement in complex urethroplasties and has physical properties beneficial to free graft survival. Expand
Coronal cuff: a problem site for buccal mucosal grafts.
TLDR
F Fistula is overwhelmingly the most common complication after buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty, andicipation of this problem during stage 1 of hypospadias repair would allow more advantageous distribution of the existing penile skin. Expand
Using Buccal Mucosa for Urethral Reconstruction in Primary and Re-Operative Surgery
TLDR
The use of the buccal mucosa graft for urethral reconstruction is a successful method with a low incidence of complications and the indications arising from this operating method should lead to the increased and broader use of this treatment method for congenital and acquired Urethral defects.

Long-term followup of bladder mucosa graft for male urethral reconstruction.
TLDR
Although bladder mucosa provides an excellent and readily available material for urethral substitution in these challenging cases, the urologist should be aware of the significant incidence of postoperative problems and their management. Expand

The main indication for using buccal mucosa in the urinary tract is in those who require complex secondary hypospadias surgery. Twenty-two children had inner lower lip mucosa onlay patch toExpand

TLDR
The preferential indication for this type of urethroplasty remains a bulbar urethral stricture with sterile urine, however, the aetiology and length of the stricture are not discriminant factors. Expand
