    ABSTRACT: We report the results of corporeal tunica vaginalis free graft for single stage correction of severe chordee in children with proximal hypospadias. A total of 18 children with proximal hypospadias and severe chordee underwent tunica vaginalis free graft for correction of chordee and urethroplasty. The graft was anastomosed to the ventral surface of the corpus cavernosum to correct severe penile curvature without dorsal plication of the corpus cavernosum. Single stage urethroplasty was then performed. In cases where the urethral plate was too short for urethral reconstruction a transverse preputial island flap was used for single stage urethroplasty. If the incised urethral plate did not have a well vascularized and supple appearance or the prepuce was not sufficient for phallic coverage, we transected the urethral plate and staged urethroplasty was done. Mean followup was 27.5 months. In 13 patients ventral chordee was corrected using tunica vaginalis free graft without transecting the urethral plate, and urethroplasty was performed in 1 stage. In 3 patients the urethral plate was transected and a transverse preputial island flap was used for single stage urethroplasty. In 2 patients the urethral plate was transected and interposed with dermal graft and tunica vaginalis free graft, followed by staged urethroplasty. There was mild residual chordee in 2 cases. One child had a urethrocutaneous fistula at 2 weeks postoperatively, and 1 presented with obstructive pattern uroflowmetry due to meatal stenosis. In this preliminary report the majority of patients with proximal hypospadias and severe chordee were successfully treated with single stage repair using tunica vaginalis free graft for correction of severe chordee.

    ABSTRACT: To describe a new approach to the treatment of primary obstructive megaureter (POMU) using endoscopic endoureterotomy. The results obtained with this technique are reviewed with long-term follow-up. A total of 47 children (mean age 3.7 years) with 52 POMU units and a history of failed conservative management underwent endoureterotomy of obstructed juxtavesical and intramural ureter. A 3F Double-J ureteral stent was introduced up to the obstructed segment of ureter. Then a zebra catheter was inserted into the affected ureter beside the stent, followed by a neonatal-size ureteroscope. Following delineation of the length of the narrowed portion of the ureter, a guidewire with a plastic sheath replaced the zebra catheter. A longitudinal incision was made through the detrusor muscle at the 6 o'clock position, leaving the bladder adventitia untouched. The Double-J stent was left in place, while its distal tip was fixed by long nylon suture and single knot to the external genitalia to permit easy removal 1 week after the procedure. With a mean follow-up of 39 months (range 14-62 months), no leakage, ureteral-orifice obstruction, or reflux was observed. The postoperative success rate was 90% (47 of 52 ureters), defined as resolution or decrease in hydroureteronephrosis and improvement or stability of renal function determined by renal scan. In 37 ureterorenal units (71%), there was complete resolution of hydroureteronephrosis. On the basis of previous studies demonstrating the value of endoureterotomy with stenting for the treatment of benign ureteral strictures in adults, we developed a modified endoscopic approach for the treatment of POMU and applied this technique in meticulously selected cases. Our results showed that this approach is a valid option for the treatment of children with POMU.
