Assessment of the outcome of the tubularized incised plate (T.I.P) tech-nique in the management of distal hypospadias; prospective single-centre study
To assess the consequence of tubularized incised plate urethroplasty on primary hypospadias repair. Total of 42 male patients underwent hypospadias repair in AL-Diwaniyah Teaching Hospital/Iraq. from April 2016 to April 2018. The levels of the hypospadias defect, age at operation, type of sutures and dressing, type of catheter and time of removal and complications were verified. Tubularized incised plate urethroplasty done for all patients and mean patients age at operation was 4.4 years (range 1 year to 8year). Postoperative follow up was 1 to 3 months. Generally, meatal stenosis, dehiscence due to infection and an urethrocutaneous fistula occurred in 3,2and 6 patients, respectively. T.I.P. urethroplasty has come to be the favourite surgical procedure of distal hypospadias cases at our hospital. The technique has a small number of complications in addition to prove success and adaptability that continue to increase its application.
