Abstract

Purpose: A step-by-step harvesting technique for buccal mucosa is described that maximizes graft yield while minimizing potential donor site morbidity in urethral reconstruction. Materials and Methods: A specialized oral retractor was used to expose and retract the buccal mucosal lining of the oral cavity for graft harvesting in 12 patients. Results: Adequate buccal mucosal graft size was obtained for each reconstruction. There were no oral donor site or urethral recipient site complications. Conclusions: This harvesting technique offers a simple and effective method for optimizing buccal mucosal graft harvests.
