Background/Purpose: One stage urethroplasty with parameatal foreskin flap (OUPF) applicable to all types of hypospadias was first described by Tomohiko Koyanagi, however high complication rates were reported.The aim of this study is to analyze the results of a modification of the Koyanagi technique as a one-stage repair of proximal hypospadias. Patients and Methods: During the period of from March 2008 to March 2009, 30 patients underwent treatment of proximal hypospadias using the modified Koyanagi technique. Patient age at the time of surgery ranged from 6 to 24 months. In all cases, the urethral opening was at or just proximal to the penoscrotal junction. Follow up ranged from 3 months to 1 year. Results: Primary success occurred in 27 cases (90%) with accepted cosmetic appearance. Complications occurred in 3 cases (10%). Urethrocutaneous fistula occurred in 2 cases (6.7%). Meatal recession occurred in 1 case (3.3%). There was no incidence of meatal stenosis, urethral stricture, residual chordee or complete flap necrosis. Conclusion: The modified technique permits one-stage repair of proximal hypospadias with low complication rates. Keywords: Hypospadias, Koyanagi, One stage urethroplasty.
