(4) In fact, many complications including urethrocutaneous fistula
are often detected only after the second year of follow-up or after the onset of puberty.
The most common complication and their rate in our study was oedema (2.5%) and Urethrocutaneous fistula
Results: The overall incidence of urethrocutaneous fistula
was 21 (8%) out of the total study population.
Jinga and Iconaru (10) reported a case of a 49-year-old male with penile abscess developed following intracavernous injection which was further complicated with urethrocutaneous fistula
12 weeks after the initial treatment.
They reported that performance of pericatheter urethrogram resulted in causing pain as well as disruption of biofilm (mucopurulent membrane) along the urethral catheter as well as chances of infection around urethral anastomosis as these organism are much more resistant to antibiotics and can result in deep seated abscesses,anastomotic failures and urethrocutaneous fistula
This is a retrospective study of seven patients with post-traumatic and iatrogenic urethrocutaneous fistula
of penile urethra, excluding complication of hypospadias surgery.

One of our major concerns was the meticulous dissection through the scrotal layers of dartos and Buck's fascia so as to prevent the formation of urethrocutaneous fistula
Chung, "Risk factors for the development of urethrocutaneous fistula
after hypospadias repair: a retrospective study," Korean Journal of Urology, vol.
The patient subsequently developed an urethrocutaneous fistula
Of the 55 patients who received complete two-stage hypospadias repair, 13 had single urethrocutaneous fistula
, 4 had multiple urethrocutaneous fistula
, two patients had meatal stenosis, one patient had urethral stricture and one patient had wide meatal opening.
Late complications include inadequate removal of skin, skin bridges, chordee, epidermal inclusion cyst, urethrocutaneous fistula
, and meatal stenosis.
