A boy with hypospadias with thin urethra

A.S., 9 months old child was brought with abnormal curvature of penis and abnormal urinary opening- a condition called hypospadias (means urinary opening on downside of penis). The abnormal curvature is called chordee. On examination – urethral opening was situated on the underside of penis and the terminal part of urethra was very thin and abnormal for whole length of penis. This is called hypoplastic urethra. The child was planned for a single stage chordee correction& urethroplasty.

During chordee correction surgery, hypoplastic urethra was excised and the penis was straightened. After laying open of the thin urethra, the opening was at proximal penile region making the child effectively a child having proximal penile hypospadias. An onlayprepucial flap was made from the excess skin on the upper side of penis – this technique of Single Stage Urethroplasty is called Transverse Island Flap Urethroplasty. The flap was rotated towards the underside of penis for making a new urinary pipe. The baby was discharged the next day after urethroplasty surgery and double diaper was used for draining the catheter.

Dressing was removed five days after surgery and the catheter was removed after 10 days in clinic.

At 3 months follow-up the penis has healed well and now looks like a normal circumcised penis.
