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 was raised with axial vessels; (i) BM-lined flap was tubularized over an urethral sound to construct a neourethra; (j) the symphysis pubis was exposed; (k) the symphysis pubis was cut apart and the posterior urethra was separated; (l) a posterior urethra defect was created; (m) the constructed neourethra flap was tunneled and ready for posterior urethral replacement; (n) posterior urethral defects were repaired with the constructed neourethra flap. BM: buccal mucosa; BMG: buccal mucosa graft; SCI: superficial circumflex iliac vessels.
