Abstract

Between 1983 and 1993, 41 patients underwent a first-stage Belt-Fuqua operation for penile hypospadias repair and 39 completed the second stage. Minor complications were observed after the first stage. The primary success rate following the second stage was 82%. Major complications noted after the second stage consisted mainly of fistula formation. The surgical technique is described and alternative methods are discussed.
