The foreskin advancement flap: An alternative technique for reconstruction of penile burns JOURNAL OF PLASTIC RECONSTRUCTIVE AND AESTHETIC SURGERY Momeni, A., Abidari, J. M., Karanas, Y. L. 2013; 66 (4): 570-573

Abstract

Penile burns are devastating injuries and are frequently associated with significant functional and psychological sequelae. The goals of penile reconstruction after burn injury include: 1) skin coverage, 2) preservation of penile length, sensation and erectile function, 3) esthetic integrity, and 4) permissive for penile growth in the pediatric patient. A multitude of different techniques have been proposed, including skin grafts, local, regional, and free flaps, each of which fail to address all goals of reconstruction. We introduce the foreskin advancement flap that, when available, successfully addresses these key challenges and as such provides for an ideal reconstruction.
