Özet

Objective To assess the results of surgical correction of incomplete penoscrotal transposition and its impact on subsequent definitive urethroplasties and the final outcome. Patients and methods The medical records of 22 patients who had undergone surgical correction for incomplete penoscrotal transposition at one centre in the last 8 years were evaluated retrospectively. The surgical technique is described and the outcome after correction is noted. Results All cases had severe hypospadias and approximately half had associated anomalies. No major complication occurred following surgery and the appearance of the external genitalia was satisfactory as judged both by the surgeons and patients. Operative scars did not constitute major handicaps for the subsequent urethroplasties. Sixteen patients have completed reconstructive surgery of whom 12 have glandular and four coronal meatuses. Conclusion Reconstruction of penoscrotal transposition yielded satisfactory results in terms of cosmetic appearance and functional external genitalia, and is recommended before definitive urethroplasty.
