Cystoscopy at the time of benign hysterectomy: a decision analysis.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019 04 24;220(4):369.e1-369.e7. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Trinity Health of New England, Hartford, CT.

Background: Gynecologists debate the optimal use for intraoperative cystoscopy at the time of benign hysterectomy. Although adding cystoscopy leads to additional up-front cost, it may also enable intraoperative detection of a urinary tract injury that may otherwise go unnoticed. Prompt injury detection and intraoperative repair decreases morbidity and is less costly than postoperative diagnosis and treatment. Read More

Bull Soc Pathol Exot 2016 Dec 14;109(5):329-333. Epub 2016 Jun 14.

CHU Sylvanus-Olympio, BP 57, Lomé, Togo.

The purpose of this study is to describe a simple, non-expensive, accessible and effective technique of ureterovaginal fistula diagnosis, and to assess the results of surgical management in a resource-constrained hospital. During a campaign of obstetric fistulas repair, we diagnosed ureterovaginal fistulas by vaginal exam with the blue methylene test associated to abdominal ultrasonography, two simple and non-expensive explorations which permitted to identify ureterovaginal fistula and to do differential diagnosis with vesicovaginal fistula. The management was surgery, by ureterovesical reimplantation. Read More

Trends in the aetiology of urogenital fistula: a case of 'retrogressive evolution'?

Authors:
Paul Hilton

Int Urogynecol J 2016 Jun 7;27(6):831-7. Epub 2016 Jan 7.

Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

It has long been held as conventional wisdom that urogenital fistulae in low-income and middle-income countries are almost exclusively of obstetric aetiology, related to prolonged neglected obstructed labour, whereas those seen in high-income countries are largely iatrogenic in nature. There is, however, a growing perception amongst those working in the field that an increasing proportion of urogenital fistulae in low-income and middle-income countries may be iatrogenic, resulting from caesarean section. Recent studies suggest that adverse patterns of care may also be emerging in high-income countries; an increase in the risk of both vesicovaginal and ureterovaginal fistulae following hysterectomy has been reported, concurrently with the reduction in overall use of the procedure.

Arab J Urol 2014 Jun 15;12(2):97-105. Epub 2014 Mar 15.

Hurley Medical Center, Michigan State University, Flint, MI, USA.

Background: A vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is an abnormal fistulous tract between the bladder and vagina, causing continuous loss of urine via the vagina. VVF is a relatively uncommon condition, but there is a drastically higher prevalence in the developing world. Furthermore, iatrogenic postoperative VVF is most common in developed countries, compared to mainly obstetric trauma in developing countries. Read More

[Vesicovaginal fistula. Incidence, etiology and phenomenology in Germany].

Urologe A 2015 Mar;54(3):349-58

Urologische Klinik und Poliklinik, Universitätsmedizin der Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Langenbeckstraße 1, 55131, Mainz, Deutschland,

Background: Vesicovaginal fistulae are much more common in developing countries along the equatorial fistula belt than in industrialized countries. However, although the classical obstetric fistula caused by lack of medical support through pregnancy and delivery in adolescent primiparae has almost vanished in Germany, we are now facing new and predominantly iatrogenic variants. Increasing frequency of gynecological surgery as well as pelvic radiation, forgotten vaginal foreign bodies, or uninhibited cancer growth are the modern causes for vesicovaginal fistula in elderly patients.

Laparoscopic treatment of genitourinary fistulae.

Arch Esp Urol 2012 Sep;65(7):659-72

Robotic and Minimal Invasive Surgery Center, CIMI, Caracas, Venezuela.

We present the laparoscopic management of genitourinary fistulae, mainly five types of fistulae, vesicovaginal, ureterovaginal, vesicouterine, rectourethral and rectovesical fistula. Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is mostly secondary to urogynecologic procedures in developed countries, abdominal hysterectomy being the main cause of this condition; they represent 84.9% of the genitourinary fistulae (1).

Fistulas in malignant gynecologic disease: etiology, imaging, and management.

Radiographics 2009 Jul-Aug;29(4):1073-83

Academic Department of Radiology, St Bartholomew's Hospital, Dominion House, 59 Bartholomew Close, London EC1A 7ED, England.

A fistula that occurs in association with a malignancy of the female reproductive tract may be caused by a primary or recurrent tumor or may be a complication of surgery or radiation therapy. Identification of the cause, complexity, and location of a fistula is essential for optimal management planning. Radiologic imaging, particularly with computed tomography and magnetic resonance techniques, is invaluable for the assessment of gynecologic fistulas and may help direct the clinician toward the most appropriate management pathway.

Post-traumatic female urethral reconstruction.

Curr Urol Rep 2008 Sep;9(5):397-404

The New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center, 445 East 77th Street, New York, NY 10021, USA.

Post-traumatic urethral damage resulting in urethrovaginal fistulas or strictures, though rare, should be suspected in patients who have unexpected urinary incontinence or lower urinary tract symptoms after pelvic surgery, pelvic fracture, a long-term indwelling urethral catheter, or pelvic radiation. Careful physical examination and cystourethroscopy are critical to diagnose and assess the extent of the fistula. A concomitant vesicovaginal or ureterovaginal fistula should also be ruled out.
