Most of patients with phimosis are subjected to circumcision. Instead of circumcision, a conservative surgical approach preputioplasty can be done as a prepuce salvage procedure.
scopemed.org/?mno=230306Results: All patients were operated under local anaesthesia in
outpatient department. The mean operative time was 10 minutes. No major
complication was seen in any of these patients. Oedema of prepuce,
haematoma and mild inflammation was noticed in a small number of
patients. But wound infection and disruption occurred in none of the
patients. The wound healing was good in all the patients on two weeks
follow up. On one month follow up the cosmetic results were very good as
per patient satisfaction.
Conclusions: Dorsal slit preputioplasty is a simple procedure to perform
without special equipment, less cost and less morbidity as day surgery
procedure. This technique produces salvage of prepuce thereby conserving
the sensations and functions inherent to prepuce.
