Non-transecting bulbar urethroplasty seeks to replicate the results of traditional bulbar urethroplasty and particularly of excision and end-to-end anastomosis but without the need for transection of the corpus spongiosum and its vasculature with a view to minimising the short-term and long-term morbidity of the procedure.
