PMID:  7083973     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An endorectal advancement flap technique has been utilized in 35 women for repair of "simple" rectovaginal fistulas, i.e., those of low or midseptal location, less than 2.5 cm in diameter, and of traumatic or infectious etiology. Colostomy is unnecessary. Concomitant sphincteroplasty for correction of associated anal incontinence is readily accomplished. Results are excellent with healing ultimately achieved in 32 of 35 women (91 per cent).
