Vesicouterine fistula following Cesarean delivery--ultrasound diagnosis and surgical management

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol. 2005 Aug;26(2):183-5. doi: 10.1002/uog.1925.


Vesicouterine fistulae are uncommon, with most units reporting 1-5 cases over 5-15-year periods. To date there has been a paucity of case reports regarding this problem and only a few case series. In this report we outline the presentation and management of a vesicouterine fistula complicating a repeat Cesarean delivery, specifically describing the role of transvaginal ultrasound.
