Abstract

Early repair of episiotomy dehiscence was performed in 22 women with an initial fourth-degree episiotomy, and five with a mediolateral episiotomy. Early complications were limited to development of a pinpoint rectovaginal fistula in two women, both subsequently repaired by a rectal mucosal flap procedure. Of the 27 women now 1 year or more post-repair, all are completely continent and report resumption of normal coital activity.
