Objectives: To describe a novel approach of retropubic urethrolysis using placement of a tissue expander to prevent rescarring after previously failed vaginal urethrolysis in a patient with known extensive scar tissue.
The use of a tissue expander in retropubic urethrolysis after failed vaginal urethrolysis in one patient resulted in resolution of voiding dysfunction, severe urge urinary incontinence, and recurrent urinary tract infections.
