The objective of this film is to demonstrate the management of a rectovaginal fistula in a woman in her thirties. Three months before, she had benefited from the resection of a nodule of the rectovaginal septum, along with the vaginal resection of the posterior Douglas’ pouch and the anterior resection of the rectum using the wedge technique with circular stapling. The fistula can be well identified in the clinical examination. A laparoscopic low anterior resection with transvaginal extraction is presented.
