Abstract

The operation of prepuceplasty overcomes phimosis in children while conserving the foreskin. The narrowed preputial outlet is incised longitudinally and repaired transversely. When appropriate, this minor procedure produces lasting relief of the deformity, as shown in 55 patients followed for up to 20 years.
