Abstract

Purpose: Marking a neo-urethral plate of uniform width. Aims and Objective: To re-construct a uniform diametered neo-urethra. Material and Methods: An autoclaved 16-gauge straightened stainless-steel wire was bent in U-shape with both its limbs 15-mm apart. The U-shaped wire was dipped in methylene blue dye and then lightly and precisely pressed on an optimally stretched, stabilized and wrinkle-free neourethral plate of a dorsally flexed penile shaft. Result and Observations: Marking of neo-urethral plate was symmetrical and time saving. Conclusion: The technique is easy, safe and economical.

Keywords:
