Recto vaginal fistula Repair


Recto vaginal fistula Repair refers to a surgery performed to treat a rectovaginal fistula (abnormal connection/opening between the vagina and the rectum). In this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision or cut either between the anus and the vagina or just inside the patient’s vagina. Then the surgeon brings the healthy tissue together, in many separate layers and stitches this healthy tissue (between the vagina and rectum) together for covering and repairing the fistula.
