          We read the recent article by Alshammari et al. [1] with great interest and would like to congratulate the authors for presenting their new technique. However, there are certain issues that need to be highlighted. First, the authors have re-emphasized our previous work [2] and have mentioned that the penile urethra actually terminates at the mid glans level, and not the tip of the glans. However, they have failed to replicate and follow one of the major conclusions of that paper, i.e. glans wings are separated by the septum glandis and the frenulum.
