Treatment and Medical Follow-up of a Boy With Urethral Triplication
Lin H et al. – A 17–month–old boy presented with a mild abnormal appearance of the foreskin and was enrolled into the authors' department. The boy had one normal urethra, one accessory urethra originating from the bladder neck and opening into dorsal pennies, and one accessory urethra opening into glans penis but not communicating with the other two urethras. At surgery, the midshaft epispadias was excised and two meatal openings remained untouched. Two weeks after operation, a repeat voiding cystourethrogram showed no signs of abnormality. During the past 4–year follow–up, the patient reported good urethral voiding, with no complications such as urodynia or urinary tract infection.
