Long-term analyses of the UroLume Endoprosthesis have shown conflicting results with regard to efficacy and restricture rates. The best management of recurrent urethra stricture disease at the site of a previous UroLume stent is unknown. We describe a previously unreported technique for transperineal excision of the UroLume for recurrent bulbar urethral stricture disease with one-stage reconstruction using buccal mucosa. At 9 months of follow-up, the patient was voiding well with no evidence of stricture recurrence.
