Introduction. The urethroplasty of the urethral stricture disease is still a severe problem for surgeons. The aim of this study is to evaluate own results of buccal mucosa graft urethroplasty (BMGU) for the treatment of urethral stricture.

Aim. Evaluation of own results of urethroplasty with a graft of the oral mucosa in the treatment of urethral strictures.

Materials and methods. Between 01.08.2014 and 01.06.2020 we treated 136 patients with urethral stricture at our Medical Centers, where we provided buccal mucosa graft urethroplasty for bulbar and penile urethra.

Results. The bulbar stricture was found among 105 patients of 136 (77,1 % cases), in which 64 had stricture in proximal part and 41 – in distal part of the urethra, 19 patients – in penile urethra and the other part had panurethral lesion. The median length of the stricture was measured as 3,8 ± 0,6 sm in the first three groups, and in the last group it was 10,4 ± 1,5 sm. At a median follow-up of 16,3 months 87,5% of patients in the first group, 90,2 % in the second, 84,2 % in the third and 83,3 % in the fourth group had no stricture recurrence and were satisfied with BMGU.

Conclusion. For patients with urethral stricture disease, BMGU offers excellent success, morbidity with different techniques and methods, which statistically are equal to each other.
