Abstract

We have used the bipedicled scrotal flap in a staged manner for circumferential penile defects. The advantages of this technique were reliable coverage with an inconspicuous donor site, provision of expansile skin allowing normal erection and preservation of the penile–scrotal junction. The disadvantages were multistaged procedure, skin mismatch because of rugosity, and hair growth. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
