Urethral reconstruction following failed hypospadias repair is difficult because of a severe shortage of the skin on ventral surface of the penis. We experienced a successful reconstruction of a failed hypospadias repair using the radial forearm free flap. So we present our case. METHODS: A 16-year-old boy had a proximal shaft hypospadias and had been taken a transverse preputial island flap but it completely broke down. There was no spare skin on the shaft of the penis. So we reconstructed a neo-urethra and the ventral skin of the penis with the radial forearm free flap.
Postoperatively he made relatively good process. The urethral catheter was maintained for 10 days and self-voiding was started. The suprapubic catheter was removed on the postoperative 30th day after control of cystitis. The postoperative appearance of the penis is acceptable and a straight erection is achieved.
In the scarred penis with hypospadias, the radial forearm free flap transfer is a reliable reconstructive method for the neo-urethra and the ventral skin of the penis.
