Penis splitting, known clinically as penile bisection or genital bifurcation, is a type of body modification. Traditional bisection involves opening the head, or glansof the penis. It may be split once down the middle or along each side of the shaft.
If the fusion of the urethral folds fail to progress distally on the ventral penis, the urethra will be shortened. Hypospadias occurs when the fusion of the urethral folds stops proximal to the tip of the glans penis. The term, hypospadias, means under [hypo] the rent [spadon].

In severe cases, the hardened area can include the muscle and arteries of the penis, leading to problems with erections. It usually develops over time, but sometimes appears very quickly.

Hypospadias is a condition in which the urethra does not develop the right way and the urethral opening meatus or pee-hole is not in the normal place at the tip of the penis. The opening can occur anywhere below the tip of the penis, along the shaft of the penis, or all the way to the scrotum. Hypospadias is one of the most common problems that boys are born with. It happens in one of to male births.
Hypospadias is a common variation in fetal development of the penis in which the urethra does not open from its usual location in the head of the penis. It is the second-most common birth abnormality of the male reproductive system, affecting about one of every males at birth. The remainder have proximal hypospadias, in which the meatus is all the way back on the shaft of the penis, near or within the scrotum. Shiny tissue that should have made the urethra extends from the meatus to the tip of the glans; this tissue is called the urethral plate.
