A vesicovaginal fistula is an opening that develops between the bladder and the wall of the vagina. The result is that urine leaks out of the vagina, sometimes lightly but it can be steady if the fistula is large. In addition to being a serious medical problem, this condition is very upsetting. The leakage is embarrassing and can smell bad . 17. Amenorrhea. 18. Approaches to Improve the Diagnosis and Management of Infertility. 19. Fibroid Uterus. 20. Prolapse Uterus. 21.

The rate of cesarean delivery is 30% or more across the United States, and an estimated one to three quarters of cesarean delivery patients may develop a defect in their uterine scar. Cesarean-delivery scar defects—including uteroperitoneal fistula, niche, and isthmocele (1-3)—are currently underdiagnosed and may consequently be left untreated at a staggering rate External duodenal fistula is more frequent than is internal fistula. Internal duodenal fistula may occur between the duodenum and other abdominal viscera, as, for example, between the duodenum and the gallbladder. A number of cases of so-called internal duodenal fistula have been reported in which there was a rupture of the duodenum Obstetrics and Gynecology articles covering symptoms, diagnosis, staging, treatment, prognosis, and follow-up. Peer reviewed and up-to-date recommendations written by leading experts determinants of obstetric fistula using the first round of data collected to study this topic from a population perspective, the 2006 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) in Uganda. Review of the literature The literature on obstetric fistula is extremely scarce in the social sciences regardless of the gravity of this health condition The therapy of TEF is always a challenge in medicine. By far, closure of the fistula with stenting is the ideal method. Airway stenting is indispensable for almost all TEF, except for those where the fistula orifice is located in middle and distal esophagus and without main airway stenosis (esophageal covered stent only is adequate)
Gynecological cancer is also another probable cause of the fistula especially when the patient undergoes radiotherapy. An indirect cause of having obstetric fistula is poverty.

A rectovaginal fistula is an epithelialized communication between the rectum and the vagina (when distal to the dentate line, it is an anovaginal fistula).

Arteriovenous Fistulas. An arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein. When there is a fistula in the brain, we call it an arteriovenous malformation (AVM). When a fistula occurs near the dura (the covering material of the brain), it is a dural arteriovenous fistula. Sometimes AVFs are present at birth. Introduction. Obstetric fistula is a medical condition in which a fistula (hole) develops between either the rectum and vagina (rectovaginal fistula), or between the bladder and vagina (vesicovaginal fistula) [1, 2].It is usually caused by prolonged, obstructed labour, without timely medical intervention—typically an emergency caesarean section Vesicovaginal fistula is an anomalous communication between the bladder and vagina, resulting in continuous urine leakage through the vagina. This condition occurs most commonly after obstetrical and gynecological injury. In the developed world, the most common cause of vesicovaginal fistula is gynecological surgery. In North America, bladder injury during a hysterectomy is the most common. Surgery for the obstetric vesicovaginal fistula: a review of 100 operations in 82 patients.

Median length of hospital stay was longer in patients with post-operative pancreatic fistula: 16.5 (range 7-38) days compared with 10 (range 7-15) days (p=0.019) INTRODUCTION. Rectovaginal fistula (RVF) is one of the most complicated subjects in obstetrics and gynecology practice. It has a devastating effect on patients' quality of life and appropriate management of this condition has been challenging.  In advanced cervical carcinoma, the implementation of radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy sets in motion a sequence of events that might.
