Single Stage Versus Two Stage Repair

  • Ahmed T. Hadidi


Opinions about the best operative technique for patients with hypospadias have varied, evolving with time. Until the 1960s, the accepted methods for surgical management of hypospadias involved a two-stage approach. The most popular techniques were those of Thiersch (1869) and Duplay (1880), modified and popularised by Byars (1955), and that of Nove-Josserand (1897), subsequently adapted and popu larised by Bracka (1995a, b), Denis Browne (1949), whose technique was modified by Durham Smith (1973), and Cecil and Culp (Cecil 1946; Culp 1966).
