The preputial island flap technique introduced by Duckett for repair of severe hypospadias has met with much clinical popularity. We report the use of a modification of this technique for repair of epispadias in 3 boys with exstrophy of the bladder and in 1 with penile epispadias. The results have been excellent in 3 cases and good in 1. Minimum followup has been 18 months.
