For thousands of years, women simply tolerated the distressing symptoms generated by rectovaginal fistulas (RVFs). This is no longer necessary because most RVFs can be surgically corrected via a number of approaches. The most common etiology of RVFs is obstetric injury, followed by radiation injury, inflammatory bowel disease, operative trauma, infectious etiologies, and neoplasm. We here show the operative management of a RVF that complicated a laparoscopic gynecological procedure.
