A penile torsion with a fistula due to previous hyp ospadias surgery: A case report

We presented a case of penile torsion due to previous hypospadias surgery. A patient applied to our clinic for treatment of hypospadias fistula and accompanying penile torsion. Patient's urethral fistula was repaired first and penile torsion was corrected in the second stage due to multiple fistula tracts. Proximal based flip flap technique was used for closure of the fistula and simple degloving with release of fibrous tissue and pedicle of the previous preputial island flap was used for correction of the penile torsion. Post hypospadias surgery torsion deformity as in our case may corrected with simple degloving and dissection at the level of the buck fascia
