ABSTRACT
Obstetrical procedures such as prolonged obstructed labour are responsible for the majority of vesicovaginal fistula(VVF) in developing countries, while gynecological procedures are more common causes in developed countries with hysterectomy accounting for 75% of fistulae. Other less common causes of VVF include uterine cancer, pelvic irradiation, gastrointestinal pelvic surgery, tuberculosis, intra-uterine device or Bechet's disease. Although radiation techniques are being advanced, several recent studies have shown the incidence of VVF after pelvic radiation therapy for cervical cancer to range from 0.6~2%. We report, a case of 47-year-old female with VVF after pelvic radiation therapy, which was treated by neurovascular pudendal-thigh flap.
