sites of urine leakage through the vagina
Sites of Urine Leakage through the Vagina
  • Vesico vaginal fistula i.e. from bladder
  • Uretero vaginal fistula i.e. from ureter
  • Urethro vaginal fistula i.e. from urethra
    • Can be clinically distinguished with Methylene dye in the bladder and 3 swabs along the length of the vagina
  • Or
  • Cystoscopy and IVP
causes of urinary fistula
Causes of Urinary Fistula
  • Obstetric injury
    • In 3rd world countries it is obstructed labour and bladder necrosis
    • In 1st world countries it is LSCS and unrecognised bladder or ureteric damage
  • Gynaecological injury
    • Hysterectomy – bladder or ureter
    • Incontinence repair – urethra
  • Malignancy
    • Bladder or cervix
  • Radiotherapy
  • Congenital
  • Trauma
management of urinary fistula
Management of Urinary Fistula
  • For small lesions:
    • Bladder catheter or ureteric stent
    • Wait for spontaneous closure
  • For larger lesions:
    • Wait until “healed”
    • Then close from below or above
    • 3-layered closure
    • Bladder catheter or ureteric stent
causes of bowel fistula
Causes of Bowel Fistula
  • Obstetric injury
    • 4th degree tears
  • Gynaecological injury
    • Posterior repair
  • Malignancy
    • Rectum or cervix
  • Radiotherapy
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    • e.g Crohns
  • Congenital
management of faecal fistula
Management of Faecal Fistula
  • May require a diversionary colostomy
  • Must treat the underlying problem when there is inflammatory disease or cancer
  • May also require anal sphincter repair
