This monograph would be an excellent addition to the library of the surgeon who deals with vesicovaginal fistulas. The history of such repairs is reviewed and due credit given to previous operators. The author presents an exact technique of closure which is adaptable to any conceivable vesicovaginal fistula with only minor alterations. The latter half of the book contains descriptive histories of patients in whom this technique was applied. Failures are described with reasoned explanation. Gynecologists, urologists, and general surgeons approached by women with this distressing malady should find the reading of this monograph reassuring.
