Abstract

Ureterovaginal fistula is an uncommon but serious sequela of unrecognized distal ureteral injury during pelvic operations. Traditionally, it is managed either by endoscopic internal ureteral stenting or by ureteral reimplantation. We report a case of ureterovaginal fistula that failed to respond to ureteral stenting. Because the patient had a history of several laparotomies and intra-abdominal abscesses, she was at high risk for complications with a transabdominal operation. Therefore, we used transvaginal Latzko partial colpocleisis and successfully resolved the ureterovaginal fistula.
