OBSTETRIC FISTULA

 

What is an obstetric fistula?

A fistula is a hole between a woman's birth passage and one or more of her internal organs. This hole develops over many days of obstructed labor, when the pressure of the baby's head against the mother's pelvis cuts off blood supply to delicate tissues in the region. The dead tissue falls away and the woman is left with a hole between her vagina and her bladder and sometimes between her vagina and rectum. This hole results in permanent leaking of urine and/or feces.
 
 
 

What are the causes of obstetric fistula?

A fistula results from an obstructed labor that is left unrelieved and untreated. There are three delays that contribute to the development of a fistula: delay in seeking medical attention during labour; delay in reaching a medical facility; and delay in receiving medical care once arriving at a health care facility.


Can a fistula be cured?

Yes. An obstetric fistula can be closed with intravaginal surgery. If her surgery is performed by a skilled surgeon, a fistula patient has a good chance of returning to a normal life with full control of her bodily functions. The operation has  a 93% success/cure rate.
