For the treatment of urethral strictures / urethral stenoses with MukoCell, a small oral biopsy from the patient’s buccal mucosa is taken within an outpatient visit. These cells are used for the manufacture of the autologous tissue-engineered graft in our GMP laboratory (Good Manufacturing Practice). After three weeks the process is complete and the graft is delivered to the hospital, where it is implanted into the patient’s urethra. Depending on the length of the stricture any required amount of MukoCell grafts can be produced within the three-week period.
The appointment of the transplantation is scheduled after the biopsy and cannot be postponed.
