ABSTRACT
The most common cause of vesicovaginal fistulasis injury to the bladder at the time of surgery. The operation most frequently responsible for vesicovaginal fistula formation is hysterectomy. The first successful transvaginal approach to vesicovaginal fistula repair was reported by Sims in 1838. Although many surgical procedures exist, there is no best approach for all patients with vesicovaginal fistula. However, it is an essential surgical principle that the fistulous tract and scar should be excised completely. Here we report our technique using a transurethral pointed electrode for the treatment of multiple, small vesicovaginal fistulas and its outcome.
