Abstract

Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is abnormal communication between bladder and vagina, presenting with urine leakage through vagina between 7-10 days. The quick and accurate diagnosis of VVF and timely repair by experienced surgeon improves outcome and help in limiting clinical insults and patient distress. The current management options include conservative, open laparoscopic and robotic methods. Most large or complex VVF still require well planned surgical approach with intervening tissue. Currently, its management is employing other methods such fibrin glue to plug-seal VVF and successful uses of auto to logous satellite cell/smooth muscle cells injections as well as alginate gel is also in pipeline, which might further make the management of VVF minimal invasive and highly successful.
