Over a 9-month period, 25 consecutive patients with subcoronal hypospadias underwent hypospadias repair using the MAGPI technique. Only those patients with subcoronal lesions, and without chordee were included in this series. The mean age at the time of repair was 3 years with a range of 1.2 to 9 years. The average length of hospitalization was eight hours and the overall complication rate was 4%. The technical simplicity and reliability of this procedure as well as the excellent cosmetic and functional results which can be obtained make it an essential adjunct to our surgical armamentarium.
