Purpose: Reconstruction of post-prostatectomy strictures involving the fossa navicularis and external urethral meatus following benign prostatic hyperplasia treatment is challenging in terms of creating a functional and cosmetically appealing penis. We reviewed our results with the use of ventral transverse island fasciocutaneous penile flap in the reconstruction of these strictures.
