This study states that Urethrocutaneous fistula is the most widely recognized intricacy of hypospadias fix. Tubularized chiseled plate urethroplasty (TIPU) has been utilized for the administration of distal fistulas. This examination reports the use of TIPU in the treatment of huge penile fistulas. Between April 2002 and September 2012, 15 patients with huge penile fistulas who were dealt with TIPU were remembered for the examination. The fistulas were sited along the penile shaft from proximal to distal penile confinement. Glanular and coronal fistulas were rejected. The careful procedure was finished by the standard TIPU strategy. The encompassing scar tissue of the fistula was circumferentially extracted, and the urethral plate at the level of the fistula was etched to give execution of free urethral tubularization. A urethral stent was saved for 5–7 days. The mean age of the patients was 7.3 ± 3.1 years. Essential activity of these patients was tubularized preputial island fold (n = 6), on-lay preputial island fold (n = 4), and TIPU (n = 5). The destinations of the hypospadias fistulas were as per the following; penoscrotal (three), mid-penile (eight) and subcoronal (four). Fistulas repeated in two patients after fistula fix. The postoperative development of the patients was 12.4 ± 7.7 months.
