Case Study
We present a 76-year-old male patient, who was diagnosed with transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the distal part of the urethra. Transurethral resection of the tumor (TURT) of the urethra was conducted. After establishing local relapse, surgical removal of the distal part of the urethra was proposed to the patient. Due to no consent for an open surgery, another electroresection of the tumor was performed. When the second relapse occurred, the patient provided his consent for surgical removal of the part of the urethra with anastomosis of the remaining part of the urethra with the skin from the abdominal part of the penis. Postsurgical observation did not reveal any local relapse.
