Purpose: We report a multicenter experience using tubularized incised plate urethroplasty to correct distal hypospadias. Materials and Methods: A total of 148 patients underwent repair by 6 pediatric urologists at different institutions in the United States and Europe. Results: Tubularized incised plate repair created a functional neourethra with a vertically oriented meatus. Complications, including meatal stenoses and fistulas, occurred in 10 patients (7%). Conclusions: Tubularized incised plate urethroplasty can be performed in most cases of distal hypospadias. Cosmetic results are superior to those of other popular techniques.
