Endoscopic use of cyanoacrylate glue in the treatment of urethral fistula.

AbstractPURPOSE:
The aim of this video is to demonstrate an endoscopic and minimally invasive repair of an urethrocutaneous fistula with cyanoacrylate glue.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
A 56 year-old-man with post-infectious urethral stricture and recurrent perineal abscess formation due to urethral fistulas.
RESULTS:
The operative time was 60 minutes, no major complications were observed perioperatively and postoperatively. At a follow-up time of 6 months the patient had no evidence of recurrent fistula and abscess formation.
CONCLUSIONS:
The endoscopic use of cyanoacrylate glue represents a safe and minimally invasive approach that might be offered as a first line option for the treatment of urinary fistulas in selected patients, especially those with narrow and long tracts.
