ORLANDO, FL USA (UroToday.com) - The second day of the Society for Pediatric Urology (SPU) meeting commenced with a session on hypospadias. Multiple different techniques were presented to address the problems that are familiar to all pediatric urologists who tackle this pathology. A few of the presentations will be highlighted, as a variety of topics were covered.

auaA unique graft substitute was offered in the form of lingual mucosa. Dr. Ahmed Sakr from the Zagazig University in Egypt presented a series of patients who were treated with a graft harvested from the surface of the tongue. Remarkably, grafts of nearly 3cm in length were obtained (mean 2.7 +/- 0.9cm). Twenty patients were repaired with ventral onlay grafts in one stage, and 17 patients were corrected by two-stage dorsal inlay urethroplasty. Primary donor site complications included pain and numbness with concomitant slurred speech, which spontaneously resolved by the 6th day. Complications were reported in 9 patients (24.3%), but overall, this graft material shows promise.

Presented by Ahmed Sakr at the Society for Pediatric Urology (SPU) Annual Meeting held concurrently with the American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting - May 16 - 21, 2014 - Orlando, Florida USA
