[Microbial contamination of penile tissues as a risk factor for complications in the treatment of hypospadia].
Urologiia (Moscow, Russia : 1999)
Biopsy of the skin, fascia and urethra was performed in 29 cases of urethroplasty for hypospadia in children and adults. The patients were divided into two groups: group 1 (n=14) with primary plastic urethra and group 2 (n=15) with secondary urethroplasty of hypospadia with complication. Tissue samples were examined microbiologically and morphologically. Focal infection of penile skin was found after iodopiron sterilization as well as contamination of the skin, fascia and urethra in all the patients of group 2. Nonclostridial anaerobes dominated among the bacteria. Microbiological investigations in groups 1 and 2 proved a great role of Bacteriodes fragilic in the development of penile tissue inflammation.
