[Vaginal-sigmoid fistula caused by diverticular disease].Minerva Ginecol. 1998 May; 50(5):195-7.MG
A case of a 66 years old patient suffering from a sigmoido-vaginal fistula and diverticulosis, previously treated with a total laparohysterectomy, is reported. Retrograde studies demonstrated the presence of fistula, whereas colonoscopy and barium enema failed. After laparotomy and an appropriate bowel preparation, surgery was restricted to the bowel resection and anastomosis, whereas the vaginal defect was not closed.
