Vesicovaginal Fistula (VVF), is an abnormal fistulous tract extending between the bladder and the vagina that allows the continuous involuntary discharge of urine into the vaginal vault. It often has a profound effect on the patient's emotional well-being.

VVF is often caused by childbirth, when a prolonged labor presses the unborn child tightly against the pelvis, cutting off blood flow to the Vesicovaginal wall.
