Surgery for distal hypospadias: what about the catheter?
AbstractNo agreed recommendations exist for timing of urethral stent removal, after distal hypospadias surgery. We compared our preliminary case series with outcomes from literature: 18/44 patients were treated with catheter and 26/44 without it. The surgical outcome was comparable in the two groups. After hypospadias surgery, the main advantage of the immediate postoperative catheter removal was the shorter hospital stay without negatively affecting the care and home management.
