Intentional transvesical cesarean was done for delivery in a woman born with an imperforate anus, ectopic intravaginal urethra, and vaginal and urethral strictures. She had undergone multiple reconstructive procedures that left her bladder completely covering the anterior uterine surface. The rest of the uterus, including the fundus and the broad ligaments, was obscured by multiple bowel adhesions. Cesarean delivery was necessary because of pelvic bone and soft-tissue deformity. Anterior and posterior vertical cystotomies resulted in exposure of the anterior uterine wall, and the fetus was delivered through a vertical uterine incision. The woman recovered and 6 months later has no genitourinary complaints.
