Abstract

Correction of chordee is a basic step in hypospadias surgery. In some children with significant chordee, ventral deflection of the shaft will persist after all "chordee tissue" is excised from the surface of the corpora cavernosa. In the flaccid state, this persistent chordee may not be evident but is easily demonstrated with an artificial erection technique. The use of dorsal placation of the tunica albuginea to correct this deformity is emphasized.
