Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Bladder fistulas involve an abnormal connection between bladder and either vagina or intestine. In this review chapter, we cover the etiology, clinical presentation, and various surgical approaches to repairing vesicovaginal and enterovesical fistulas. The long-term sequela after surgical repair includes recurrent incontinence, lower urinary tract symptoms, infection, and vaginal stenosis. Strategies to approach fistula repair to minimize these complications are emphasized.
