Abstract

Many man-to-female-transsexuals prefer sex reassignment surgery. Surgical complications are common, most frequently a stenosis of the vagina as well as the urethral ostium. In up to 24% of patients secondary corrective surgery is necessary. Regret and feelings of doubt can occur in up to 8% of the cases. In the setting of an interdisciplinary team the postoperative somatic, psychological and socio-economic situation can be improved. This review is based on a Medline literature search and summarizes the pertinent literature of the last 22 years.
