Incidence of the undescended testis (UDT) along with hypospadias varies from 6 to 31%. The repair of UDT and hypospadias is rarely done simultaneously. Here we present a novel technique that uses processus vaginalis as vascular cover for neourethra in hyposapdias patients with UDT. We have done urethroplasty and orchiopexy simultaneously. This is the first report of processus vaginalis being used to reinforce the urethra.
