Abstract

Interventional endoscopy is a rapidly evolving field allowing surgeons and endoscopists to approach surgical conditions nonoperatively. Stenting of benign colorectal disease has been limited due to technical issues and lack of long-term data. Colovaginal fistula can be a challenging condition to treat. In this report, we describe the technical aspect and results of endoscopic stenting of benign colovaginal fistula in 2 patients, using the combined transanal and transvaginal approach.
