Introduction: We report our results of preputial flap onlay urethroplasty for the one-stage repair of mid- and proximal penile hypospadias with chordee. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the hospital data base for children undergoing onlay flap urethroplasty and hypospadias repair for mid- or proximal penile hypospadias with chordee. Results: During the study period January 2000–December 2017, 21 children underwent onlay preputial flap urethroplasty. The procedure was successful in 15 (71.42%) children with no need to undergo further procedures or operations. There were five urethrocutaneous fistulas and dehiscence of glans in one. Conclusions: An onlay urethroplasty using the preputial flap yields results comparable to those of staged techniques and results in fewer procedures under anesthesia in children.
