Repair of Rectovaginal and Colovaginal Fistula

Fistulas are holes formed inside the body. Fistulas can form in the wall of the vagina. A vaginal fistula that opens into the rectum is a rectovaginal fistula. A vaginal fistula that opens into the colon is a colovaginal fistula. Fistulas can happen after surgeries, from radiation, bowel disorders and lacerations after childbirth. Surgeries are the most common treatments to remove the fistulas and close the holes. This is performed in open, minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
