Repair of Hypospadias Using Bladder Mucosal Graft

  • 1Department of Urology, Keimyung University, School of Medicine, Taegu, Korea.


Since Memmalaar first reported the use of bladder mucosa graft technique in penoscrotal hypospadias in 1947, this technique has been used with reasonable success for the reconstruction of new urethra for the posterior hypospadias and hypospadias cripples. The a bladder mucosa is abundantly available, sterile and has good elasticity. This mucosa does not produce hair, does not excoriate, and does not desquamate from the exposure of the urin. Two new urethrae in patients with posterior hypospadias, aged 11 and 21, were successfully reconstructed with bladder mucosal graft technique. A minor meatal stricture developed in one patient. However, the over-all results of this technique appear to be satisfactory.
