Abstract
Since july 1991 the Arap modification of the Meatal Advancement Glanduloplasty Incorporated (MAGPI) is used for repair of minor anterior hypospadias. Seventy-two boys have been treated by this technique since then. Follow-up is longer than 2 years in half of the patients. The functional and cosmetic result, as estimated by the surgeon and an urologist who did not perform the operation was excellent in 64 patients (89 %). In 3 patients the functional result is good but the cosmetic result is poor. In 2 patients meatal stenosis developed of which 1 was treated by dilatation and 1 by meatotomy. In 3 patients there was complete loss of the suture lines resulting in hypospadias which was repaired by other techniques. Ten patients underwent praeputioplasty with the procedure. In 4 patients the sutureline lost partially necessitating circumcision. The Arap modification of the MAGPI is presented as a good technique for the repair of minor anterior hypopadias.
