INTRODUCTION: Hypospadias is one of the most frequent congenital anomalies in birth. Many factors may have part in etiology. Its treatment is possible only through surgical intervention, and there are more than 300 methods in literature identified for hypospadias repair. The purpose of this study is to compare Snodgrass and Bracka methods, the methods most frequently used for hypospadias repair, in terms of urethral fistula and meatal stenosis.
METHODS: In this study, the data of 40 patients operated between 2014 and 2019 years have been used. 20 of the patients have been operated with Snodgrass, and the others have been operated with Bracka method.
RESULTS: The average ages of the patients operated with Snodgrass method and Bracka method were 4 years 3 months and 2 years 9 months respectively. Average length for follow-up for the patients operated with Snodgrass method was 18 months 9 days, and it was 35 months 1 day for the patients operated with Bracka method. Urethral fistula was observed to develop in %30 of the patients operated with Snodgrass method and %25 of those operated with Bracka method totally. In both methods, rates of meatal stenosis were more frequent compared to fistula (Snodgrass: %35, Bracka %40).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Fistula development is found numerically more in the patients operated with Snodgrass method while meatal stenosis development is observed numerically more in those operated with Bracka method.
