Evaluation of double faced transverse preputial (onlay) island flap for hypospadias repair in pediatrics: a randomized controlled study.

Int Urol Nephrol 2022 Jul 24;54(7):1471-1477. Epub 2022 Apr 24.

Pediatric Surgery Department, Al-Azhar University, Al-Houssain University Hospital, Darrasa, Cairo, Egypt.
