ABSTRACT: In a prospective study a single stage urethroplasty using prepucial flaps was done on 25 consecutive cases of children having hypospadias with chordee during 1994-1995. All the children had their meatus on the shaft of penis after chordee correction. Based on Barcat classification there were 19 anterior penile, 4 mid penile and 2 posterior penile hypospadias. Two types of repair, described by (a Duckett and (b) Asopa were used with certain modifications. Of the 25 patients 10 had major complications, 9 had fistula (8 single and 1 multiple) and in one child the entire flap necrosed and sloughed off. Four children had stricture. In all there were 60 percent success rates with good functional results. The final appearance was acceptable to the parents.
