Abstract

A 29-year-old woman suffered a vesicouterine fistula following cesarean section. The fistula was treated successfully after cystoscopic identification and fulguration of the tract. Although various surgical approaches to this problem have been described, and a number of cases of spontaneous resolution are reported, to date there have been no reports of treatment of this problem via cytoscopic fulguration. We advocate this simple technique as a primary approach to vesicouterine fistulas.
