SERRANO DURBA, A. et al. Hypospadias repair with Snodgrass' Technique. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.5, pp.528-531. ISSN 0210-4806.

Retrospective study of 124 patients (average age: 3.8 years) with midpenile hypospadias: 48,3% (60 children), distal penile: 45,9% (57) and coronal 5,6% (7), of which the 25.8% (16) presented ventral curvature and the 4,8% (6) resulting from the complication of another previous technique. All of them were operated according to Snodgrass' technique, removing the catheter between the 6th and 7th day in most of them. The global rate of complications was of 12%: 9 fistulae (7,2%) and 6 meatal stenosis (4,8%). Aesthetic result was satisfactory in all cases, getting glans covered by foreskin in 57,3%.
