NAVALON VERDEJO, Pedro et al. Dorsal meatoplasty for the treatment of meatal stenosis in patients with balanitis xerotica obliterans. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.10, pp.1156-1160. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objectives: To present our experience in the treatment of meatal stenosis secondary to balanitis xerotica obliterans with the dorsal meatoplasty technique. Methods: We have performed dorsal meatoplasty in 15 patients suffering stenosis of the penile meatus secondary to balanitis xerotica obliterans. All cases were performed under local anesthesia, using an inverted V incision plasty following the original of technique from Malone. Results: All patients showed an improvement in uroflowmetry as well as an excellent aesthetic result, with low incidence of scattered urinary stream; there was a high satisfaction index evaluated by a questionnaire. Conclusiones: Dorsal meatoplasty with inverted V incision is an easy-to-perform technique, which may be done under local anesthesia, avoids the development of post-operative hypospadias, and achieves excellent aesthetic and functional results with a low recurrence rate; therefore we consider it should be included in the list of frequently performed procedures of the urologist.
