Ann King Edward Med Uni Jan ;8(2):120-3.

The purpose of study was to see the results of repair of Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) and ureterovaginal fistula (UVF) from January 2001, to December 2001. We prospectively analyzed 39 patients who were operated in our department for the management of Vesicovaginal and ureterovaginal, fistulae due to gynecological and obstetrical procedures. Out of these 39 patients 17 (43.5%) were in third decade of life with mean age of 32.5 years. 31 (79.48%) were having VVF and 08 (20.51%) were having UVF. 30 (76.92%) patients were operated in first attempt, 07 (17.94%) needed second attempt and 04 (10.25%) were operated for third time. We can decrease the incidence of genitourinary fistulae by improving physical and socio-cultural status of the patients and by better training of the young doctors.
