Abstract

In developed nations, vesicovaginal fistulas are most commonly encountered as a complication after gynecologic surgery. Most fistulas are corrected using a transvaginal approach; however, complicated cases often require intraabdominal repair. A novel abdominal approach is described, using a small anterior cystotomy and omental pedicle interposition.
