The addition of uterine mucosa as a viable option for prelamination of the penile neourethra provides a new strategy for potentially reducing urethral complications after phalloplasty by providing an additional source of mucosa for prelamination and allowing surgeons to avoid unnecessary operative sites as well as the use of composite grafts.
