All vesico-vaginal fistula? which can not be healed by operating within the vagina should be closed within the bladder after performing suprapubic cystotomy. The patient is given the Trendelenburg position. Fistula? or large defects may also be closed by means of a pedunculated flap taken from the posterior vaginal wall (Trendelenburg). After the flap has healed into the defect, which requires a few weeks, its pedicle is divided and the fistula or defect closed on all sides. The urine is temporarily evacuated by suprapubic drainage. In suitable cases of vesico-vaginal fistula the bladder may 1m? detached from the vagina as completely as possible and each sutured separately (Herczel).
