Abstract

Use of the ventral preputial island flap technique for repair of epispadias has yielded satisfying functional and cosmetic results. We report a modification of this technique in a patient with proximal penile epispadias without exstrophy. We used the Duckett modification of the onlay island flap using ventral preputial skin and coupled it with a proximal flip-flap of perimeatal skin without division of the urethral plate. This achieved an excellent result.
