OBJECTIVE: In developed nations, surgery, especially gynecologic procedures, is the major cause of vesicovaginal fistulas (VVFs). We retrospectively evaluated our treatment modalities for VVF repair caused by a gynecologic surgery, and discussed the reasons of selecting certain surgical techniques and their outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We compared the surgical procedure preferences of surgeons and their results with patient and surgeon characteristics for the management of VVFs after an inciting gynecologic surgery in Süleyman Demirel University Hospital, Isparta over a 10-year period...

BACKGROUND: Vesico-vaginal fistulae (VVF) remain the most prevalent genitourinary fistula detrimentally impacting quality of life. PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to examine relevant literature on management of VVF. RECENT FINDINGS: Obstructed labor is the leading cause of VVF in the developing world with most repairs performed via the transvaginal approach. Conversely, the predominate etiology in industrialized nations is iatrogenic injury with an increasing trend towards abdominal repair via a minimally invasive (laparoscopic and robotic) approach...

An intracranial aneurysm (IA) is a cerebrovascular pathology that can lead to death or disability if ruptured. Abnormal wall shear stress (WSS) has been associated with IA growth and rupture, but little is known about the underlying flow physics related to rupture-prone IAs. Previous studies, based on analysis of a few aneurysms or partial views of three-dimensional vortex structures, suggest that rupture is associated with complex vortical flow inside IAs. To further elucidate the relevance of vortical flow in aneurysm pathophysiology, we studied 204 patient IAs (56 ruptured and 148 unruptured)...

INTRODUCTION: Although infrequent, when encountered vesicovaginal fistulas (VVF) are a difficult condition for both patients and physicians alike. After the first robotic repair was described in 2005, this has been an increasingly common treatment modality. At our institution between 2009 and 2014, eleven of these patients were evaluated and treated with robotic repair. However, fibrin sealant was used in place of the traditional tissue flap. Included are six patients who had previously undergone operative repair...

Extraperitoneal transvesicoscopic vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) repair has received limited use because of its narrow working space, longer operation time, and technical difficulty. The present study describes the feasibility of robotic-assisted transvesicoscopic VVF repair in an animal model. Two Yorkshire swine underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic (RAL) VVF repair. With the 4 trocars, an artificial VVF was made in the supratrigonal area and VVF repair was performed in 3 layers as in open VVF repair methods...

Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is commonly associated with obstetric trauma, but in developed nations it is typically iatrogenic. To date, there have been no published reports of VVF resulting from consensual sexual activity with sex toys. A 19-year-old gravida 0 presented with leakage of clear urine from the vagina following repetitive use of a sex toy with her female partner. The fistula was repaired in the operating room using a vaginal approach and a layered closure. This is the first case report of a VVF caused by consensual sex toy use between same-sex partners...

BACKGROUND: Post-hysterectomy vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is rare. In addition to conventional abdominal and vaginal approaches, robotic-assisted VVF repairs have recently been described. We present a case of an extravesical, robotic-assisted VVF repair, without placement of an interposition graft performed in a Canadian teaching center. CASE: A 51-year-old woman presented with urinary incontinence 5 days after laparoscopic hysterectomy. Computed tomography cystogram, cystoscopy, and methylene blue dye test, confirmed a VVF above the bladder trigone...

BACKGROUND: Vesicovaginal fistulas (VVF) are the most commonly acquired fistulas of the urinary tract, but we lack a standardized algorithm for their management. Surgery is the most commonly preferred approach to treat women with primary VVF following benign gynaecologic surgery. OBJECTIVE: To carry out a systematic review and meta-analysis on the effectiveness of operative techniques or conservative treatment for patients with postsurgical VVF. Our secondary objective was to define the surgical time and determine the types of study designs...

Rectovaginal fistula (RVF) and vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) are infrequent but distressing complications after pelvic surgery. However, their adequate treatment is not well described. Here, we simultaneously encountered and successfully treated RVF and VVF after radical surgery for rectal cancer. A 70-year-old woman underwent low anterior resection (LAR) combined with resection of the uterus, the bilateral adnexa, and the upper side of the vagina, as well as diverted ileostomy for rectal cancer. A month after the surgery, she developed urinary incontinence and underwent medical treatment, but her symptoms did not improve...

We present a rare case of indirect vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) in a patient with small capacity bladder. The fistula was between abdominal pseudocyst (APC) arising from bladder and vagina - and hence, an indirect VVF. A 35-year-old female had a history of emergency obstetric hysterectomy with iatrogenic bladder injury. Postoperatively, the patient developed VVF and large APC. Patient's micturating cystourethrogram was suggestive of small capacity bladder with bilateral Grade IV vesicoureteral reflux with a well-defined APC arising from superior surface of bladder to L4-L5 lumbar vertebrae...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: High vesicovaginal fistulas (VVF) in the setting of good apical support are best repaired via a transabdominal approach. Laparoscopic VVF repair was first reported in 1998. Several series of robot-assisted VVF repairs have since been published. The robot-assisted approach allows repair of high apical vaginal fistulas while avoiding the morbidity of laparotomy, shortening convalescence, and facilitating the use of omental interposition flaps. This video presents the technique for robot-assisted extravesical VVF repair utilizing a laparoscopically mobilized omental flap...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Open transabdominal repair of vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) requires a long cystotomy incision, suprapubic drainage and delayed recovery. Laparoscopic repair is limited by difficult suturing in pelvic procedures. Therefore, the utility of robotic assistance is being increasingly explored. We share our initial experience of robot-assisted laparoscopic VVF repair. METHODS: The data from patients who underwent robot-assisted VVF repair from December 2014 to August 2016 were recorded and analyzed...

Treating recurrent vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is a major clinical problem. We present a technique and special precautions taken during treatment of a small recurrent VVF with the help of combined cystoscopic and/or transvaginal injection of cyanoacrylate in two patients. Except for frequency of micturition in the first patient, postoperative follow-up was uneventful. Endoscopic management with cyanoacrylate is a simple and effective alternative to major reconstructive surgery.

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The Goh Vesico-Vaginal Fistula (VVF) classification has prognostic value in VVF in the developing world (predominantly obstetric), with chances of successful closure decreasing from type 1 to type 4. We evaluated the prognostic value of the Goh classification for VVF of the developed world (predominantly iatrogenic). METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of 63 consecutive patients with a mean age of 53 years (range 21-88) undergoing VVF repair under a single surgeon between 2006 and 2014...
