Rectovaginal Fistula Surgery in Indore

A rectovaginal fistula is an abnormal connection or passage between the rectum (the last portion of the large intestine) and the vagina. This condition allows stool and gas to pass from the rectum into the vagina, leading to symptoms such as fecal incontinence, foul-smelling vaginal discharge, and recurrent infections. At Intimate Clinic, we provide advanced rectovaginal fistula surgery in Indore. 

Causes of Rectovaginal Fistula:

  1. Childbirth: Prolonged or difficult childbirth, especially when forceps or vacuum extraction is used, can cause injury to the tissues between the rectum and vagina.

  2. Surgery: Surgical procedures in the pelvic area, such as episiotomy or hysterectomy, can sometimes lead to the formation of a fistula.

  3. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Conditions such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis can cause inflammation and damage to the rectum and surrounding tissues.

  4. Infection: Infections, such as abscesses in the pelvic region, can contribute to the development of a fistula.

  5. Radiation Therapy: Radiation treatment for pelvic cancers can damage tissues and lead to the formation of fistulas.

Symptoms of Rectovaginal Fistula:

  1. Fecal Incontinence: Involuntary leakage of stool through the vagina.

  2. Foul-Smelling Vaginal Discharge: The discharge may contain stool or pus.

  3. Recurrent Infections: Infections of the urinary or reproductive tract.

  4. Pain: Discomfort in the pelvic area.

Treatment Options:

  1. Surgery: Surgical repair is the primary treatment for rectovaginal fistulas. The specific surgical approach depends on the size, location, and cause of the fistula.

  2. Stoma: In some cases, a temporary diverting stoma (an opening created in the abdominal wall) may be created to divert stool away from the affected area during the healing process.

  3. Medical Management: Antibiotics may be prescribed to manage or prevent infections.

  4. Pelvic Floor Therapy: Pelvic floor exercises and therapy may be beneficial in optimizing pelvic muscle function.

The choice of treatment depends on the characteristics of the fistula and the overall health of the individual. It’s important for individuals experiencing symptoms of a rectovaginal fistula to seek medical attention promptly. A healthcare professional can conduct a thorough evaluation, confirm the diagnosis, and recommend an appropriate treatment plan tailored to the specific circumstances.
