Author information

  • 1West Midlands Regional Plastic Unit, Wordsley Hospital, Stourbridge.


The long-term psychological and physical sequelae of hypospadias and its management were assessed in a study of 213 patients over the age of fifteen. A high level of adult dissatisfaction regarding the quality of their repairs both in terms of function and aesthetics, plus criticism of inadequate guidance, indicates the need for follow-up until at least mid-teens, and the choice of operations which produce a terminal meatus and more natural appearance.
