Abstract:   (1014 Views)

Urethral fistula formation after urethroplasty for hypospadias is a frequent complication. Repeated failures can occur even after multiple attempts at repair. A surgical procedure is described for a problematic resistant urethrocutaneous fistula (UF) with the transverse turnover flap using the Buck’s fascia of the corpus cavernosum. A 23-year-old male was admitted to our hospital with recurrent coronal UF. We placed a suprapubic catheter in the bladder and operated the patient with the flap technique combined with glanuloplasty. In 3rd month follow up, the patient had no fistula with normal voiding.

Keywords: Buck’s fascia, Fistula, Hypospadias, Transverse turnover flap
