Background: Operative laparoscopy was performed for the management of ovarian remnant syndrome involving the bladder, bowel, vagina, and ureters, and requiring extensive dissection. A vesicovaginal fistula developed postoperatively.
Case: Because of the complexity and location of the fistula, a vaginal approach was not appropriate. Using techniques of videolaparoscopy, videocystoscopy, and operative laparoscopy, the fistula was repaired.
Conclusion: In experienced hands, endoscopic management of complex vesicovaginal fistulas may be an alternative to the traditional abdominal approach.(Obstet Gynecol 1994;83:899-901)
