In our series of the six patients, the urethral stents failed when used in strictures recurring after urethrotomy or urethroplasty. Surgical removal of the stents require partial urethrectomy and the loss of the urethral tissue and local adverse conditions do not allow the use of one-stage urethroplasty, using graft or flap for reconstruction.
