PURPOSE Psychosexual development is currently underrepresented in hypospadias outcome research. [...] Key Method A population of 109 former patients with hypospadias was then assessed using this questionnaire. Furthermore, functional and cosmetic aspects, behavioural anomalies, and sexual activity were investigated. Age-matched patients undergoing circumcision served as control patients. Possible influence factors on patient satisfaction were investigated.Expand
Psychosexual Outcome, Sexual Function, and Long-Term Satisfaction of Adolescent and Young Adult Men After Childhood Hypospadias Repair.
The number of surgeries and satisfaction regarding penile appearance were the most important factors associated with the opinion on hypospadias repair and the psychosexual outcome and the results showed that multiple surgeries are a risk factor for poorer outcomes. Expand
Evaluating quality of patient-reported outcome measures in patients with hypospadias.
This work evaluated existing measures with published psychometric data, including validation data, in the hypospadias population and investigated the established validity and relevance of PROs within each of these domains for patients with hypos padias. Expand
Self-reported outcomes after the onset of puberty in patients undergoing primary distal hypospadias repair by the tubularized incised plate technique combined with preputial reconstruction vs. circumcision: A norm related study.
Self-reported outcomes after the onset of puberty were not significantly different between patients undergoing primary TIP repair of distal hypospadias in childhood and normal controls, and patients were significantly more commonly feared of being teased for their genital appearance, but this did not interfere with their social skills.

High satisfaction on genital self-perception and sexual function in healthy Norwegian male adolescents.
A key finding in this study was high satisfaction on the overall PPPS score and reported sexual function in a healthy group of Norwegian male adolescents, aged 16 and 17. Expand
The hypospadias-specific health-related quality of life conceptual framework: a scoping review of the literature
A novel conceptual framework provides a foundation for understanding disease-specific HRQoL in individuals with HS and may serve as a guide for the conduct of future qualitative studies of the HS population. Expand
Bringing Jewish ritual circumcision (Brit Milah) into the operating room: An analysis of surgical outcomes and satisfaction across families and Society of Pediatric Urology members.
This novel program incorporating Brit Milah into the OR yields high caregiver satisfaction, no additional OR time or post-operative complications, and provides an opportunity to combine family-centered care with cultural competence. Expand

Functional, cosmetic and psychosexual results in adult men who underwent hypospadias correction in childhood.
Study outcomes were heterogeneous due to operation techniques and a lack of validated questionnaires and control groups, and long-term results of hypospadias patients should be measured in a prospective design using validated measurement tools. Expand
Long-term outcome of penile appearance and sexual function after hypospadias repairs: situation and relation
Patients who had been operated for hypospadias after surgeries into adulthood have a significantly careful concern on penile appearance, and the more severe the hypos padias, the more dissatisfactory the long-term outcome. Expand
Long-term cosmetic and sexual outcome of hypospadias surgery: norm related study in adolescence.
Although patients with hypospadias had a slightly higher rate of dissatisfaction with penile size, their sexual behavior was not different from that in control subjects, and the long-term cosmetic and sexual outcomes of hypos pads performed in childhood were evaluated. Expand
Body image and sexuality in adolescents after hypospadias surgery.
Boys operated on for hypospadias appear to experience normal social, psychosocial and sexual development. Expand
Long-term functional outcome and satisfaction of patients with hypospadias repaired in childhood.
Long-term outcomes data are critical to an honest account of success rates for hypospadias surgery, and in this series, despite high initial complication rates, most patients reported excellent long-term functional results and were quite satisfied with their overall outcome. Expand
Sexual and Social Life of Men Operated in Childhood for Hypospadias and Phimosis
Minor differences observed in sexual life between men operated for hypospadias and other men seem not to be due to the circumcised appearance of the penis even in cultures where circumcision is uncommon. Expand
Psychosexual adjustment of children and adolescents after different types of hypospadias surgery: a norm-related study.
In addition to procedures that bring the meatus to a more terminal position, those that bring it more ventral can be performed without negatively affecting psychosexual adjustment. Expand
Is there an ideal age for hypospadias repair? A pilot study.
This study does not provide evidence to support recommendations concerning the ideal age for hypospadias repair and, in the absence of evidence of a benefit of early surgery, anesthesia-related risk factors must be considered when operating in very early infancy. Expand
Early hypospadias surgery may lead to a better long-term psychosexual outcome.
The association between no recollection of treatment and satisfaction with body appearance suggests that surgery should be completed before age 5 years when possible to allow the development of good body image in adolescence. Expand
Psychosocial adaptation of middle childhood boys with hypospadias after genital surgery.
Surgically corrected hypospadias should not be considered a risk factor for poor psychosocial adaptation in childhood, but emotional problems increase with the number of hospital-related experiences. Expand
