N2 - Purpose: Long-term evaluation of the surgical outcome after puberty, particularly patient reported outcome is rare in the literature. The aims of this study were to investigation the patients' satisfaction with the long-term results and their views and memories of their childhood surgery and follow-up. Methods: A modified version of previously used questionnaire was sent to 134 patients ages 18 years or older previously primarily repaired due to hypospadias by one of the authors (HS) between 1989 -2009. Results: Thirty-nine patients responded. Eighty-two per cent were satisfied with the appearance of their penis, 87% were satisfied with their ability to urinate and their sexual function and 92% were satisfied with the overall surgical results. Ninety per cent of patients were positive to the current duration of our post-pubertal follow-up program or would have preferred an even longer follow-up. Conclusions: The majority of patients were satisfied with the long-term surgical results and the duration of follow-up. Despite having problems patients does not always contact the health care system spontaneously, which warrants long-term follow-up.
