What is Penoscrotal Webbing
Congenital webbed penis is a disease of penile and scrotal hypoplasia, which can cause poor appearance, pseudo-small penis, and penile curvature, and in severe cases it may inhibit penetration. As a result, the disease could lead to psychological tension and physical problems.

Webbed penis is a deformity where the scrotal skin extends onto the ventral penile skin. This disorder can be congenital or acquired. The latter is more common and mainly iatrogenic, caused for example by overly aggressive removal of skin from the underside of the penis during circumcision. This deformity can cause chordee, discomfort during intercourse, difficulty in wearing a condom, and psychological tension brought about by cosmetic deformity, which can therefore create a need for surgery We know that the pathological anatomy of a webbed penis is the adhesion of full-thickness scrotal skin to ventral penile skin.

The aim of treatment is to free the glans penis (if necessary), match the penile skin to penis length surgically, and restore a normal penis-scrotum angle. Using the technique here described we have corrected all forms of webbed penis.

Procedure
The penis is held gently nearly at a right angle to the abdominal wall. A longitudinal incision is made along the ventral-median raphe from the bump on the penis to the scrotal skin at the level of the upper edge of the pubic symphysis. The skin, subcutaneous tissue, and superficial fascia of the penis are cut in turn. The scrotum thecae, attached to the deep fascia of the penis, are located. The thecae are cut from the urethral spongiosum and the ventral part of the penile spongiosum so that they can be separated down to the root of penis. The thecae are then separated from the skin and pushed down to the scrotum. The scrotum skin is trimmed enough to allow extension of the penis skin, and the incision is sewn up. All patients achieve immediate cosmetic results after surgery, without severe complications.
