PURPOSE: Patients with failed hypospadias repair are a challenging population for pediatric and reconstructive urologists. We describe our long-term outcomes and factors associated with complications of repeat hypospadias repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of 32 adult patients with a history of hypospadias repair who required subsequent urethroplasty between 2002 and 2012. Data on the presenting complaint, past medical and surgical history, demographic data, surgical approach, intraoperative findings and complications were collected and analyzed...

INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE: Proximal hypospadias is one of the most challenging conditions that pediatric urologists have to deal with. Many procedures have been devised over the years, but nothing has been proven to be the best option. Although there have been some attempts at correcting severe hypospadias in one procedure, most have advocated a staged approach. The classic approach - laying penile skin or a graft within a split glans followed by glanuloplasty at the second stage - by definition requires two operations on the glans...

Background  The authors of this article became aware of significant differences in the management of two females with a rectovestibular fistula and associated vaginal agenesis. In one patient, a sigmoid colovaginoplasty was performed at the time of the posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP), and the other underwent repair of the rectovestibular fistula with a primary PSARP, but the surgeons elected to delay the timing of vaginal reconstruction. We decided to review the literature, to establish if recommendations could be made to optimize the management of these children based on current evidence...

This video provides a case report of penis entrapment secondary to excessive skin removal during circumcision. It highlights the technical aspects of pediatric penile reconstruction using autologous split-thickness skin graft (STSG). Key points include: 1. Infection prevention is paramount and antibiotic prophylaxis is routine. 2. The usual harvest site for the STSG is the lateral thigh because of its source of glabrous skin and convenient proximity to the penis. The lateral thigh is also outside of the diapered area, which helps lessen postoperative pain and infectious risks...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate our experience with fenestrated sheet split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs) in the pediatric population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively studied a cohort of 17 children 2-18years old who underwent skin grafting owing to circumcision injuries (2 patients), traumatic penile injury (1) and after previous multiple hypospadias surgery (14). Fenestrated 0.012in sheet STSGs from thigh area (15 patients) and buttock area (2) were fashioned to resurface the denuded penis following reconstruction...

INTRODUCTION: The goal of hypospadias surgery is to provide a functionally and cosmetically normal penis. Whether this goal will be to the patient's satisfaction depends largely on the original anatomy, surgical technique and surgeon's experience. It has been suggested that androgen administration is associated with better outcomes in hypospadias repair; however, few studies have included control groups and the issue is still controversial. PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of parenteral testosterone administration on the results of hypospadias repair in children with untreated hypospadias...

OBJECTIVE: Boys with complex penile anomalies often undergo multiple operations, leaving a paucity of unscarred skin for further reconstructive procedures. Our objective was to evaluate the ability of tissue expansion to provide local skin for successful phallic reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty boys (mean age of 11.9 years) with hypospadias (n = 42) or epispadias (n = 38) formed the study cohort. All patients had undergone at least one failed reconstructive operation...

Penile burns are devastating injuries and are frequently associated with significant functional and psychological sequelae. The goals of penile reconstruction after burn injury include: 1) skin coverage, 2) preservation of penile length, sensation and erectile function, 3) esthetic integrity, and 4) permissive for penile growth in the pediatric patient. A multitude of different techniques have been proposed, including skin grafts, local, regional, and free flaps, each of which fail to address all goals of reconstruction...

PURPOSE: We report a multicenter experience using double dartos flap to protect the neourethra in TIP urethroplasty for distal and midpenile hypospadias. METHODS: A total of 394 patients underwent tubularized incised plate urethroplasty for primary distal and midpenile hypospadias using double dartos flap protection by ten pediatric surgeons and urologists at five different institutions. RESULTS: Tubularized incised plate urethroplasty protected by a double dartos flap was simple to perform and flaps were easy to obtain...

Contemporary surgical techniques for concealed penis defined in the literature are sophisticated and, because of this, we decided to perform a simple technique. A child with penoscrotal web was admitted to our Pediatric Surgery Clinic. The patient had recurrent urinary tract infections without urinary tract disease and, therefore, web reconstruction was thought to be useful. A modified unfurling technique and penoscrotal angle reconstruction was used. The main characteristic of our procedure can basically be described as an oblique incision of the outer foreskin leaf which guides the next steps...

Traumatic hemipelvectomy through the sacroiliac joint is a devastating injury, mainly because of motor vehicle accidents. Recent improvements in prehospital trauma care have increased the chances of survival for victims. Besides amputation of the lower limb, associated complications usually involve digestive and urological systems. We report on 2 pediatric patients from 2 different European countries. PATIENT 1: A 9-year-old boy suffered uprooting of his left lower limb, laceration of the rectum and anal sphincter, as well as an injury to distal urethra with partial loss of cavernous bodies...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The absence of vagina is rare in the pediatric population. It can occur as a result of congenital malformations such as an aplasia of mullerian ducts (46,XX Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome) or a complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (46,XY testicular feminizing syndrome). Intersex patients, who underwent reassessment of a female sex, need a genital reconstruction toward a feminine phenotype. Patients with congenital adrenogenital syndrome with high urogenital sinus could have a severe hypoplastic vagina...

BACKGROUND: The condition of "buried" penis may arise from several factors. Although the pediatric form is a rare congenital disorder, it may become an acquired condition in adulthood, most commonly from obesity, radical circumcision, or penoscrotal lymphedema. As obesity has become a national epidemic, the incidence of this phenomenon will inevitably increase. The purpose of this article is to present current strategies in the management of this physically and psychologically debilitating condition...

PURPOSE: Reconstruction of long segment urethral stricture disease in adults with a history of pediatric hypospadias repair remains complex secondary to poor urethral blood supply, extensive penile scarring and the need for significant amounts of graft or flap tissue. We describe our experience with staged urethroplasty in this cohort of men. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 15 males underwent staged urethroplasty for urethral stricture disease following previous hypospadias repair in childhood...

PURPOSE: Although hypospadias repair for preserving the urethral plate is popular among pediatric urologists, applying this procedure to severe hypospadias is controversial. We report the outcome of applying additional modifications to the modified tubularized transverse preputial island flap (TPIF) procedure reported previously [Patel RP, Shukla AR, Austin JC and Canning DA. Modified tubularized transverse preputial island flap repair for severe proximal hypospadias. BJU Int 2005;95:901-4] for repairing severe hypospadias...
