Abstract [Full Text] [PDF]
The authors used as a standard a one-stage method of microsurgical reconstruction of the penis, urethra and glans in 38 transsexual patients, a combination of Biemer’s method, Trengove-Jones and Horton’s suture of the glans. The reconstruction method is described in detail.
Although reconstruction of the penis and urethra involved a group of 49 patients and accounted for less than 10% of all microsurgical tissue transfers in traumatology, oncological surgery and congenital defects, they are an important activity in systematic surgery.
