Complete penile rehabilitation of a patient with microphallia after correction of bladder exstrophy
Bladder exstrophy is a complex of urogenital malformations, varying in severity from epispadias to classical bladder exstrophy. The main aim of correcting bladder exstrophy in childhood is to achieve urine continence with the prevention of upper urinary tract disorders and to provide penile reconstruction. However, by the time of puberty, it is not always possible to achieve optimal anatomical features of the penis, and usually, by the end of puberty, the penile length is no more than 7 cm, which subsequently leads to psychosocial and sexual problems during puberty. Neither patient, nor urologist in most cases do not satisfy final result of the treatment of exstrophy and a number of epispadias forms. A clinical case of the surgical rehabilitation of a patient after undergoing multi-stage surgical treatment for a congenital malformation of the genitourinary system is presented in the article. MATERIALS AND METHODS: At the admission, the size of the penis was 3 cm (microfallia), urethral meatus was located in the area of the penoscrotal junction. From 2016 to 2019, the patient underwent neofallos formation, urethroplasty, and implantation of prostheses in the neophallos. RESULTS: According to the results, urinary and sexual function was completely restored, as well as anatomical relationships and dimensional parameters of the genitals.
