Abstract: Objectives: Snodgrass repair is fast becoming the procedure of choice in distal penile hypospadias. Multiple series document excellent cosmetic outcome in conjuction with low complication rates. Study Design: Prospective. Material & Methods: A prospective study of 26 patients in whom Snodgrass repair for distal penile hypospadias was done over a period of two and a half years. All patients with hypospadias other than distal penile were excluded from the study. Results: Mean age of the patients was 6.2±3.2years. Mean operative time was 68.7 minutes. Mean hospital stay was 15.4 days. Wound infection, bleeding/haematoma and urethrocutaneous fistula were the three complications seen in our patients with equal incidence (3.8%). Cosmetic as well as functional outcome was very good in our patients. Conclusions: Snodgrass Repair has revolutionised the management of distal penile hypospadias. Meticulous technique coupled with careful patient selection permit a high rate of success with minimal morbidity.
