Abstract

Urethrocutaneus fistulas are the most common complication of surgery for hypospadias. In five patients, fistulas of this type were repaired with patches of tunica vaginalis to prevent fistula recurrence. Our experience and that of others suggest that tunica vaginalis autografts can be used for treatment of a variety of urethral problems in children.
