Abstract

Although hypospadias should be repaired before school age, there is no one good method for all hypospadias repair. The surgical goals of hypospadias repair are primarily correction of chordee, formation of urethral tube, and achievement of a meatus near or at the tip of glans penis in order to achieve a functionally and cosmetically acceptable phallus. We reported on 46 patients who underwent hypospadias repair between May, 1972 and April, 1984. In two stage operation, chordectomy was undergone in 30 cases, of which 1 case had complication with incomplete chordee remove. At recent, with artificial erection technique complete chordee remove is possible. In 42 cages of urethroplasty such as MAGPI, flip-flap, Island flap technique by Duckett, modified Crawford method, Belt-Fuqua, and free flap using thigh skin, urethrocutaneous fistula developed in 9 cases, urethral stricture in 2, and keloid in 1.
