    Many reconstructive urologists have observed that higher urethra injuries lead to potentially less successful repairs. This article introduces a novel prognostic factor for pelvic fracture caused urethral injury (PFUI) to predict stricture recurrence after delayed transperineal anastomotic urethroplasty (TAU) patients with PFUI based on urethra injury locations. Patients who underwent suprapubic cystostomy tube placement and delayed TAU for PFUI by a single surgeon between 2009 and 2018 were screened. A total of 151 patients completed the follow-up. The relative location between the proximal urethra and the pubic ramus (PUE-PR), a novel stricture length classification method based on the anatomical landmark, was divided into a lower, middle, and upper group reflected by urethrogram. The nomogram was developed based on significant coefficients identified by multivariable Cox regression. Based on the relative position between the proximal urethra end and the pubic ramus (PUE-PR), 47 (31%), 66 (44%), and 38 (25%) patients were assigned to the lower, middle, and upper group, respectively. A total of 33 patients (22%) patients had a recurrence. The median (IQR) follow-up was 49 months (28-75). Smoking, endoscopic treatment history, and PUE-PR were identified as independent risk factors for stricture recurrence. The nomogram showed good discrimination with a C-index of 76.67%. The decision curve analysis (DCA) indicated that the model could bring more clinical net benefit when a threshold probability is larger than 8%. PUE-PR is a new prognostic factor for PFUI to predict stricture recurrence after TAU. A novel nomogram incorporating PUE-PR could be applied to facilitate the prediction of stricture recurrence after delayed TAU for PFUI. © 2021.
