Urethral Advancement, Glanuloplasty and Preputioplasty in Distal Hypospadias

  • Dimitris Keramidas
  • Michael Soutis


Glanular, coronal and subcoronal hypospadias are mild forms of distal hypospadias, rarely associated with true fibrous chordee. Deviation of the urinary stream is usually the only functional problem and because of that not all the patients were treated surgically in the past. However, the abnormally situated urethral meatus and unsightly appearance of the prepuce may cause psychological stress.
