Clinical Trial Summary

Hypospadias is a common anomaly of the male genitalia affecting 0.4-8.2 of 1000 live male babies and varies considerably in severity. The position of the urethral meatus can be classified as anterior or distal (glandular, coronal, or subcoronal; 60-65% of cases), middle (midpenile; 20-30% of cases), or posterior or proximal (posterior penile, penoscrotal, scrotal, or perineal; 10-15% of cases). The subcoronal position is the most common. Most cases are mild and surgical correction is undertaken mostly for cosmetic reasons at the request of the parents or on advice of the pediatrician or surgeon. Functional success of hypospadias repair depends on the creation of a uniform and adequate caliber urethra up to the meatus. Accordingly, meatal stenosis and urethral stricture are the important complications of surgery, others include urethrocutaneous fistula, diverticula, skin flap necrosis and persistent chordee. Although functional assessment of the repair is possible by observation of the urinary stream and voiding cystourethrography, uroflowmetry is considered to be a more objective tool, especially for the detection of a subclinical urethral stricture. Reports of the results of hypospadias surgery commonly focus on the cosmetic results and incidence of obvious complications, as urethrocutaneous fistulas, and symptomatic urethral Strictures. Few have emphasized the role of uroflowmetry in the postoperative evaluation of children with hypospadias to detect asymptomatic strictures and, despite the simplicity and non-invasive nature of this test, it has not become standard or widely accepted. We evaluate AUH experience by use of HOSE and uroflowmetry after hypospadias repair.
