Western blot analysis demonstrated significantly increased expression of type I and type III collagen levels in the urethral fibrosis group as compared to the sham group.
There was a significantly greater amount of type III collagen after 6 weeks healing time compared with 2 weeks (P=0.014); however, suspension (P=0.267) and the time x suspension interaction (P=0.931) had no significant effect on the amount of type III collagen.
