Purpose: We report a multicenter experience using tubularized incised plate urethroplasty for proximal hypospadias. Materials and Methods: From August 1993 to December 1996 tubularized incised plate urethroplasty was performed in 27 boys 6 months to 3 years old with mid shaft and penoscrotal hypospadias. In 7 other boys complex reconstruction combined the tubularized incised plate technique for the glanular urethra with other repairs for the proximal urethra. Results: Tubularized incised plate surgery created a functional neourethra even in penoscrotal hypospadias. Complications of the primary repair developed in only 3 of 27 patients (11%). No complications were attributed to use of the technique for the glanular urethra in complex repairs. Conclusions: Tubularized incised plate urethroplasty is a versatile operation that corrects proximal hypospadias defects with few complications and superior cosmetic results.
