The fistulas, following gynecologic, surgeries are not uncommon. Hysterectomy is one of the most common causes of lower urinary tract fistula in pelvic surgery. Higher incidences are associated with laparoscopic hysterectomy as compared to vaginal or abdominal hysterectomy. Early identification and management of ureterovaginal fistula (UVF) are of utmost importance. The laparoscopic approach in the management of UVF is preferred over open surgery as it reduces pain, hospital stay, and morbidity. However, the laparoscopic approach needs higher surgical dexterity, sound knowledge of pelvic anatomy, and has a higher learning curve. One such approach is discussed here.
