미세수술에 의한 절단 음경의 재접합
  Penile amputation results primarily from attempts at self-emasculation in the psychotic individual or from felonious assault. Because of the complex nature of patients whom perform self-emasculation and low incidence of felonious assault, large series of these individuals do not exist, and experience with amputation injuries of the genitals is confined to individual case reports. Fortunately, complete amputation of penis is quite rare but potentially devastating occurrence.
  The repots of the treatment of penile amputation by coporal reapproximation that have been published since 1977 indicate that microreplantation techniques are propably superior to the technically simpler nonmicroscopic coporal reapproximation techniques. As microsurgical techniques have been demonstrated to superior, the preferred method of replantation involves this routine whenever possible.
  We have experience of a case of successful replantation of completely amputated penis by using microneurovascular repair, with the good result of cosmetic and functional concern. Herein, we report this case with the review of the literatures.
Key Words: Penile amputation, Microneurovascular replantation
