Abstract

A simple transvesical repair of uncomplicated small vesicovaginal fistulas was done successfully on 40 consecutive patients. More extensive procedures using combined intraperitoneal-transvesical approaches with extensive dissection and omental flaps probably are necessary for the repair of large, complicated or irradiated fistulas. However, these are not often encountered in urological practice. The method described herein is recommended for fistulas encountered more frequently.
