Abstract

The most common complication which is found in PubMed is hypospadias fistula but there are very less publications related to Glans Dehiscence (GD) for hypospadias surgery. We presented our technique used to avoid GD in patients who underwent Tubularised Incised Plaque Urethroplasty (TIPU) for hypospadias. Twenty-one pediatric patients who were underwent TIPU techniques were evaluated retrospectively. Before dressing, penis and urethral catheter were fixed to abdominal skin by a traction suture placed to the glans penis to avoid the catheter pressure over the suture line. Circular dressing with elastic bandage was not used. In our cases, GD did not happen.
