[Surgical treatment of colovesical fistulas (our experience)].Chir Ital. 1984 Aug; 36(4):572-81.CI
The Authors study the statistics of the Verona Surgical Centre, concerning 5 cases of colovesical fistula. They support the two-time operation, that is, the colon resection with colo-colic anastomosis sheltered by a decompressive transversostomy and stitching of the vesical breach. They affirm the usefulness of the operation according to Hartmann in patients facing a greater operative risk.
