  • Giuseppe Magliulo (a1), Roberta Ronzoni (a1) and Piera Cristofari (a1)

Abstract

Medial meatal fibrosis is a rare entity which is linked to inflammatory and traumatic factors. This pathology significantly benefits from surgical management. Criteria for achieving successful results are strict and concern the complete removal of the fibrous tissue and covering of the bony canal with skin graft. The aim of this paper is to present our experience with this rare pathology and to discuss current approaches.
