(mag-py) meatal advancement and glanuloplasty operation: a simple surgical procedure that is designed to correct minor to moderate degrees of coronal or subcoronal hypospadias. This single-stage operation corrects any associated minor degrees of chordee and transfers the urethral opening to the glans.

What is meatal advancement and Glanuloplasty?

Objective: The meatal advancement and glanuloplasty (MAGPI) technique is still successfully used for the repair of distal hypospadias. The technique has been modified considerably since it was first described in 1981. The primary drawbacks of the procedure are the complications of meatal regression and meatal stenosis.

What is tip Urethroplasty?

Tubularized Incised Plate (TIP) urethroplasty is a technique for urethral reconstruction of hypospadias although there are some controversies for its use in recurrent cases.

The reported incidence of complications following MAGPI repair, which required reoperation, ranges from 1.2 to 10%. [6], [7] There was no reoperation in the present study. Meatal regression and stenosis remain commonly cited problems. Meatal regression occurs when the glanduloplasty does not hold.

What are the modifications to The MagPi technique?

Surgical technique was in accordance with the original MAGPI technique with some modifications [Figure 1], including no trimming of the edge of the glans in granduloplasty and incorporation of the collar in the granduloplasty, leading to glans augmentation and taking stay suture over the ventral wall of the urethra with some perimeatal tissue.
