Abstract

Objectives. To review and evaluate our extensive outpatient experience in the use of dermal grafts for the correction of significant residual chordee in patients requiring penile orthoplasty. Methods. The medical records of all patients requiring surgical correction for severe penile curvature over the past 5 years were reviewed. Among these, 51 patients were identified in whom dermal grafts were used to correct severe residual chordee. Of these patients, 41 had severe hypospadias, 9 had epispadias, and 1 had urethral atresia. Graft harvest and placement technique, any resulting complications, and parental satisfaction with cosmetic and functional results were all evaluated. Results. The dermal grafts were harvested from the hairless skin of the inguinal area, using one of two techniques. All were used to fill a tunical defect created by incising the tunica at the point of maximal penile curvature. No complications or postoperative hospitalizations resulted from any of the orthoplasty procedures. At a mean follow-up of 27 months, all patients had excellent cosmetic and functional results. Conclusions. In patients with significant residual chordee, a dermal graft is our preferred method of penile orthoplasty. This technique provides a straight phallus with a very minimal complication rate, it can easily and successfully be performed as an outpatient procedure, and it has assured an excellent cosmetic and functional result.
