ABSTRACT: Purpose: To review our experience of using the tabularised incised plate urethroplasty carried out for the treatment of hypospadias. Methods: From October 2000 to February 2002, tabularised incised plate urethroplasty was carried out in 62 boys, aged between 11 months and 11 years. Fifty cases had distal penile hypospadias, 7 cases had mid penile, 1 case had proximal penile and 4 cases had urethral fistula. Result: Tabularised incised plate urethroplasty resulted in a functional neourethra at the tip of glans penis. Fistula developed in 5 cases and all but one closed after regular anterior urethral dilatation. Mental stenosis developed in 7 cases that required dilation. Conclusion: Tabularised incised plate urethroplasty is a versatile operation that corrects not only distal but even proximal hypospadias and can also be utilized for the reconstruction of urethral fistula. Resultant neourethra is functionally adequate and an excellent cosmetic result with a vertically oriented meatus is obtained.
