Abstract: The combination of vesicovaginal fistula and complete vaginal vault prolapse is rare. The only published treatment recommendations concern partial colpocleisis, an option that precludes intercourse. In this case report, we describe successful repair of this problem with a Latzko fistula repair and a concomitant Michigan 4-wall sacrospinous ligament suspension: instead of curing the fistula, correcting the prolapse, and preserving sexual function.
