The review analyzes the results of using non-transecting anastomotic urethroplasty in men with urethral strictures. Identified 14 original studies using this technique: 13 foreign and 1 Russian. In total, this technique was applied in 704 patients. This technique was used in 85% of cases with bulbar urethral stricture, in 15% - with posterior stricture.The average length of the urethral stricture in all studies was less than 2 cm, except for two works, where the average stricture length was 2.3 cm and 3.9 cm, respectively. This technique is equally successfully applied in all etiological variants of urethral stricture. The incidence of postoperative complications in all studies using non-transecting anastomotic urethroplastyaveraged 13.7%.Postoperative complications were mostly mild and corresponded to G1 according to Clavien-Dindo classification.According to 10 out of 14 studies that evaluated the effect of surgical treatment on the occurrence of erectile dysfunction (ED), the incidence of ED de novo was on average 13.4%. The success of treatment with the use of non-transecting anastomotic urethroplastyaveraged 95% (82-100%) with a median postoperative follow-up of 27 months (6-64 months). In 4 out of 14 studies, an additional comparison was transecting versus non-transecting techniques. Non-transecting technique was not inferior to transecting technique by any criterion, but, on the contrary, exceeded it in a number of indicators, including the dynamics of sexual function after surgery.On the basis of available studies on the use of non-transecting anastomotic urethroplasty, this technique should be recognized as a highly efficient and reasonably safe method for treating short urethral strictures and recommended for widespread clinical use.
