Abstract
We report 28 boys who underwent repair of a distal hypospadias with a combination of a modified meatal advancement and glanduloplasty and reconstruction of the foreskin. An excellent result was achieved in 24 patients. In 4 boys, preputial reconstruction failed. Only one group of parents demanded further surgery. Improved cosmetic results with avoidance of serious complications make this operation ideal for treating distal hypospadias in countries where the circumcised penis is an exception.
