Purpose: A double Y glanuloplasty technique is described for the repair of glanular hypospadias with mobile meatus. Materials: Ninety-seven children with glanular hypospadias and mobile meatus were operated on using this technique in the period from January 2003 to January 2009. Mean age of patients was 12 (range, 4-60) months. Results: Patients were discharged home within 3 days. The operation resulted in a slit-like meatus. Follow-up ranged from 8 months to 6 years (mean, 45 months). Good cosmetic and functional results were obtained in 94 patients. Complications occurred in 3 patients (3%). Two patients experienced meatal stenosis. This was corrected using ventral meatotomy. One patient suffered from dehiscence of the wound and retraction of the meatus. The meatal retraction was corrected using a modified inverted Y Mathieu technique. Conclusions: The double Y glanuloplasty technique is suitable for appropriately selected patients with glanular hypospadias and mobile meatus. It provides a cosmetically natural vertical slit at the tip of the glans. © 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
