Location Dependent: The most common urinary fistula, vesico-vaginal (bladder to vagina) is treated surgically either through the vagina or by open surgery. The goal consists of finding the tract, dividing it and oversewing the openings left on both the bladder and vagina. Additional tissue should be placed between the previously connected areas. Catheter drainage for 10-14 days and xray are done to confirm repair.
