Congenital Aphallia: Novel Use of Acellular Dermal Matrix During Scrotal Flap Phalloplasty.
Urology. 2017 Jul; 105:167-170.U

Abstract

Phallic reconstruction is an important part of management for congenital aphallia. Scrotal flap phalloplasty has been described in pediatric patients to create the appearance of a nonfunctioning phallus. We describe a modified scrotal flap technique with the addition of an acellular dermal matrix patch (AlloDerm) to provide additional girth and support to the phallus. The postoperative cosmetic outcome has been satisfactory and there is no documented complication over a 12-month follow-up. AlloDerm dermal matrix can be a safe addition to phallic reconstruction and its overall application needs to be further studied.
