ORLANDO, FL USA (UroToday.com) - This group analyzed a novel hypospadias classification method for its correlation with surgical outcomes. The GMS score includes a scale of 1-4 for the following components: Gglans size/urethral plate quality, Mmeatal location, and Sdegree of shaft curvature. A group of 262 patients were prospectively assigned a score, and 37 children (14.1%) experienced at least one complication. For every unit increase in GMS score, the likelihood of a postoperative complication increased with degree of chordee emerging as an independent predictor of fistula in multivariate analysis. Patients with S4 were 27-times more likely to develop a fistula than patients designated as S1.

auaHypospadias clearly continues to be an enigma as well as a source of frustration to many practitioners, as this topic engendered much interest, and with each group of presentations, a lively discussion ensued. Surgeons continue to apply creative approaches to address this problem. Once again, a plea was made for multi-institutional randomized trials to address questions surrounding testosterone supplementation. Standard definitions and measurements also need to be agreed upon to facilitate a comparison of results from different institutions.
