Abstract

A 12-year-old boy sustained a close-range shotgun wound with buckshot to the penis and lower abdomen. The proximal two-thirds of the corpora cavernosa was obliterated and the distal third was thrombosed. All dorsal penile skin was lost. The urethra remained intact. The patient underwent multiple debridements, allowing the wound to declare its borders. Employing the tissue transfer concept used by Cecil and Culp in hypospadias repairs, the penis was marsupialized onto the suprapubic area where it remained for 8 months. After 8 months, the patient underwent a graft delaying procedure followed by a graft harvest 2 months later and penoplasty tubularization.
