Microsurgical Penile Replantation: Case Report
Penile replantation is uncommon, with most data being case reports or case series. In our setting, replantation is fairly new despite penile amputations being common as a result of marital disputes and assault. Replantation remains the most ideal option for managing these cases. We present a case of penile replantation in a 17-year-old male after traumatic amputation following an assault. Some of the challenges we encountered included loss of skin and the glans with formation of a hypospadias. Nevertheless, the outcome was satisfactory with return of sensation and erection.
