Figure 1: Animal experiment. (a) tissue expander was placed close to the separated SCI vessels; (b) groin exploration 1 week after the expander was full inflated with saline solution; (c) the induced capsule pouch was opened by forceps; (d) gross appearance of the induced vascularized capsule with axial vessels; (e) harvesting BMG; (f) transplanting BMG to the capsule pouch; (g) BMG showed a complete survival on the vascularized capsule; (h) BM lined flap pedicled on SCI vessels was raised and ready for urethral reconstruction; (i) the penile urethra was separated from the corpus cavernosum; (j) BM lined flap was subcutaneously tunneled toward the ventral penile region; (k) BM lined flap was tubularized over an urethral sound to construct a neourethra; (l) a penile urethra defect was created; (m) urethral defects were repaired with the constructed neourethra flap. BMG: buccal mucosa graft; SCI: superficial circumflex iliac vessels.
