Hypospadias is a common congenital anomaly in male newborns. The incidence is about one in 300 live male births. In the U.S., about 6000 boys with hypospadias are born each year. For this study, we collected 117 recent (with the last 5 years) cases (88 fresh and 29 referred) who received an operation in our department. We calculated the hypospadias location and the complication rate with the desire of finding out the relationships between them. Our overall complication rate is 51.3% which is much higher than other recent studies and may be related to a different distribution of the hypospadias locations.
