, previous endoscopic treatment, prior surgery, 90-day postoperative complications (with Clavien-Dindo grade), length of stay (LOS) and stricture recurrence were reviewed.
Distal division of the corpus spongiosum associated with little or no Chordee
Due to related embryological processes, usually ventral prepitual defect, chordee
or situations such as glandular tilt may be involved.
Proximal cases are considered severe as they are associated with severe chordee
and other abnormalities like prepenile scrotum, disorders of sexual differentiation, undescended testes or inguinal hernia.
Penile duplication usually presents with associated penile anomalies such as hypospadias, epispadias, chordee
, ectopic urethra, and blind-ended or hypoplastic urethra (1-7).
Two staged Aivar Bracka (AB) repair is a relatively new technique, which gained tremendous popularity due to its versatility in that it can be used for any case of hypospadias with any degree of chordee
. Complications with hypospadias surgery include fistula, meatal stenosis, dehiscence, recurrent ventral curvature and hematoma.
, death, destruction (ablation) of the penis, glanular
The corpus spongiosum was dissected free from the corpora cavernosa to prevent iatrogenic chordee
after end-to-end urethral anastomosis.
Masculinizing surgeries for DSD include release of ventral chordee
, hypospadias repair, gonadectomies and placement of prosthetic testes in the scrotum at puberty.
My 10-month-old son (a twin) has a mild hypospadias and chordee
