Minimal hypospadias is a commonly encountered anomaly. Duckett's innovative meatoplasty and glanuloplasty (MAGPI) procedure has become a standard operation for the correction of these lesions. Although usually successful, the complication of meatal retraction has been recognized at times after a MAGPI. The M inverted V glansplasty was designed to address the factors leading to meatal retraction and the abnormal glans shape sometimes seen after the MAGPI. The M inverted V glansplasty derives its name from the initial M-shaped incision that reconfigures during the course of the procedure into an inverted V. Of 16 boys followed for more than 2 months after an M inverted V glansplasty 14 have achieved good results. The remaining 2 cases had a definite degree of meatal retraction but because of the meatal and glanular relationships they have a good cosmetic result. The technique, its indications and its limitations are described.
