PURPOSE:

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.
