Since the June 2014 TAU special issue on male GU reconstruction, we include new topics that have surfaced to the forefront of our field in the last 4 years. We selected these topics as they have resonated with many urologists at national/international meetings. The readership will enjoy novel manuscripts on stems cells/regenerative medicine, transgender surgery, updates in pelvic fracture urethral injury/posterior urethroplasty, the role of robotics in reconstructive urology, and unique topics such as the reconstructive urology workforce/fellowship training paradigms.
