Fistula secondary to neglected obstetrical labor became uncommon with the advent of modern obstetrical care in the industrialized world. The goals of modern medicine must be to provide access to sound obstetrical care and to reduce iatrogenic fistula rates to the lowest extent possible. Proven techniques used in a thoughtful manner must be employed to correct fistulae with minimal recurrence and adverse sequelae. This chapter discusses genitourinary fistula secondary to operation, obstetrical events, malignancy, and irradiation.
