AIM: Aim of the study was to compare the success rates of simple multilayered repair with repair using local flap of urethrocutaneous fistulae after hypospadias surgery.
METHODS: The charts of 45 children who developed fistulae after hypospadias repair were reviewed; 23 had a multilayered repair of the fistulae, whereas 22 had a repair using a local skin flap.
RESULTS: The success rate was 82.6% for simple multilayered repair and 95.5% for a repair using a local skin flap.
CONCLUSION: Repair using a local skin flap for urethrocutaneous fistulae after hypospadias surgery is not significantly of better success rate than simple multilayered repair.
