The Koff repair has a very low fistula rate, but Meatal stenosis
appears in about 20% of cases, probably because of a distal ischemia.
A 56-year-old man with no history of genital warts and no history of other STIs presented to us with an 8-month history of penile erythema, tightening of the foreskin, ecchymoses, meatal stenosis
, and dyspareunia (Fig.
Complications with hypospadias surgery include fistula, meatal stenosis
, dehiscence, recurrent ventral curvature and hematoma.
Measured postoperative complications included wound infection, urethrocutaneous fistula, wound dehiscence, and meatal stenosis
. Data analysis was completed using standard, 2-tailed univariate statistical tests with significance of p < 0.05.
The patient is a 56-year-old man with a past medical history significant for poorly controlled insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypothyroidism, and meatal stenosis
with incomplete bladder emptying who presented the University Medical Center emergency room with a seven-day history of perineal pain and fever.
Although meatal stenosis
has not been reported in the literature, we have left the urethral meatus wide.
Proximal hypospadias repair has significant morbidity like urethrocutanous fistula, wound dehiscence and meatal stenosis
. Application of waterproofing layer was first described in 1973.3 After the introduction of this waterproofing layer, a number of studies4-6 published different methods of its application in hypospadias surgeries with low fistula rate.
Prevention of post-mastoidectomy meatal stenosis
by an acrylic prosthesis.
When their origin is congenital, it is essentially due to posterior urethral valves or meatal stenosis
. In most cases, it is an acquired disorder whose etiology may be iatrogenic or traumatic and less commonly infectious and inflammatory .
The detected anomalies were webbed penis, penile torsion, hypospadias, chordee without hypospadias and meatal stenosis
Some 10-20% of boys circumcised neonatally develop meatal stenosis
, a narrowing of the urethral opening that requires intervention.
Overall postoperative complications were wound infection in 10 (8.55%), ring stenosis resulting in urethrotomy in 9 (7.69%), meatal stenosis
in 5 (4.27%), and mild chordee in 2 (1.70%).
