[Article in Finnish]


Vaginal laceration is rare following a water sport accident. Several cases have been reported in water-skiers and personal watercraft passengers. If a patient presents with vaginal bleeding after such an accident, careful examination under general anesthesia is recommended to detect deep trauma. We present a case of vaginal laceration from a water slide in a middle-aged healthy woman.
