Because of the complexity of phalloplasty, there is not an ideal technique for every patient. This review sets out to identify and critically appraise the… Expand

TLDR
In conclusion, this systematic review identified the impact of staging in the rate of complications related to phalloplasty for transgender female-to-male patients; a two-stage phaloplasty has a higher rate of complication. Expand

TLDR
Substitution phalloplasty in patients with bladder exstrophy-epispadias complex can achieve good functional, aesthetic, psychological, and sexual outcomes, but requires multiple procedures and carries a high complication rate. Expand

TLDR
At best, metaidoioplasty will provide a small phallus hardly, if at all, capable of sexual penetration, but I consider it to be a method of choice in cases where the clitoris seems large enough to provide aphallus that will satisfy the patient. Expand
