chordee

[kôr′dē, kôr′dā]
Etymology: Gk, chorde, cord
a congenital defect of the genitourinary tract resulting in a ventral curvature of the penis, caused by presence of a fibrous band of tissue instead of normal skin along the corpus spongiosum. The condition is often associated with hypospadias and is surgically corrected in early childhood. The goals of surgery are to improve the appearance of the genitalia cosmetically for psychological reasons, to construct an organ that allows the boy to void in a standing position, and to produce a sexually adequate organ.
A condition in which the head of the penis curves upward—dorsad—or downwards—ventrad—at the junction between the head and shaft of the penis; most cases are associated with hypospadias

chordee

Urology A fixed downward curvature of the penis, which may be congenital–eg, hypospadias or acquired–eg, due to gonorrhea

chor·dee

(kōr-dē')
1. Painful erection of the penis in association with gonorrhea or Peyronie disease, with curvature resulting from lack of distensibility of the corpora cavernosa of the urethra.
2. Ventral curvature of the penis, most apparent on erection, as seen in hypospadias due to congenital shortness of the ventral skin and, on rare occasions, in patients with a normally situated meatus.
[Fr. corded]

chordee

Angulation of the penis, when erect, usually as a result of a patch of scar tissue on the undersurface, or from the congenital deformity of HYPOSPADIAS. Chordee can seriously interfere with sexual intercourse. See also PEYRONIE'S DISEASE.

The other important factor is the presence or absence of urethral plate after adequate chordee correction, which will determine the choice of repair.
Material and Methods: This descriptive study was conducted at Department of Urology Lahore General Hospital Lahore affiliated with Postgraduate Medical Institute Lahore from 1st January 2015 to 31December 2015 during which Duckett's urethroplasty was done for 42 male children with hypospadias with chordee.
Re: outcome analysis of severe chordee correction using tunica vaginalis as a flap in boys with proximal hypospadias.
Penile anomalies consisting of webbed penis (n=14), chordee without hypospadias (n=10), penile torsion (n=7), hypospadias (n=2), meatal stenosis (n=1) were detected in 29 patients (29/318, 9%).
Babies between the ages of 3 weeks to 1 year with permission of parents to participate were included in the study whereas babies with hypospadias, chordee, epispadias, webbed penis, microphallus, hidden penis secondary to a large hydrocele or hernia and deranged bleeding or clotting profile were excluded.
The clinician must reevaluate the remaining distal foreskin of these patients closely to avoid scar formation that could result in phimosis or penile chordee.
Patients with distal penile hypospadia without chordee between 2 and 14 years were included and patients were excluded who had previous repair for hypospadias.
It can also be used to detect any plaques and calcifications, which could be associated with chordee.
All the patients presented with dystopia of external urethral meatus and chordee (ventral curvature).
Hypospadias, chordee, or a combination of the two made up more than 80% of congenital penile anomalies, said Dr.
Hypospadias, particularly when proximal, is often accompanied by chordee, curvature of the penis.
