Q: How is preputioplasty performed to correct phimosis. What is dorsal slit and what is the difference between dorsal slit and preputioplasty.
A:There are three procedures done to correct phimosis (narrow preputial mouth). Commonest is circumcision. Now most of us believe that it is too radical and is not physiological and prepuce has to be preserved if you can. The difference between dorsal slit and preputioplasty is very narrow dorsal slit does not look very pleasing but still serves the purpose and preputioplasty is plastic reconstruction and aesthetically looks better.
