Brief Summary:
Urethrocutaneous fistulae (UCF) represent one of the most frequent causes of morbidity after urethroplasty. Hypospadias can be repaired using different surgical techniques, but regardless of technique, the incidence of UCF ranges between 10% and 40%. The surgical repair of UCF remains the treatment of choice, even if some patients need further operations because of recurrences. The cyanoacrylates have been used as skin suture substitutes, and some evidence suggests a beneficial effect when these adhesives are used as an adjuvant in the management of UCF.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 2-octylcyanoacrylate
Application of 2-octylcyanoacrylate
Device: 2-octylcyanoacrylate
After sedation with midazolam (0.5 mg/kg orally) a Foley catheterization with a 10 Fr gauge siliconized catheter will be placed, with the balloon inflated with 1.5 ml water to prevent bladder spasm. After this we will apply the adhesive by using dissecting forceps to approximate the edges of the UCF, and then apply it several thin layers of OCA.

Active Comparator: Surgical reintervention
Surgical reintervention for urethrocutaneous fistula repair
Procedure: Surgical reintervention
The reoperation will consist on mobilizing dartos flaps and closing the defect in layers with absorbable sutures. Urinary bladder drainage will be provided with a 10 Fr silicone Foley catheter, with the balloon inflated with 1.5 ml water to prevent bladder spasm.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Use of 2-octylcyanoacrylate for closure urethrocutaneous fistulas after urethroplasty for hypospadias. [ Time Frame: 12 months after procedure. ]
    Closure or recurrence of urethrocutaneous fistulas after cyanoacrylate application or surgical intervention.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Morbidity after applications [ Time Frame: 12 months after the procedure. ]
    Morbidity after applications of cyanoacrylates or surgical reintervention.
