dc.description.abstractAbstract: We herein present our initial experience of a short series with the Allium™ Bulbar Urethral Stent (BUS) in the management of bulbar urethral disease. This Allium™ stent is a self-expandable metal stent which is intended for temporary placement. Our series is a retrospective analysis of 15 BUS placements in 13 patients conducted during 2014 to 2016. BUS was placed successfully after visual internal urethrotomy (VIU) in all patients. Stent insertion was successful in 8 patients (62%) with a mean follow up of 7.2 months (range, 2–12 months). Two of the failed patients stents were reinserted had repeat stenting with a successful outcome. The result of this short series suggests that BUS may have a limited role in the management of bulbar urethral stricture disease.en_US
