Two vesico-vaginal fistula patients who were successfully managed with outpatient care as an alternative approach, to ensure early access to care and integration into their family. The two patients had simple uncomplicated mid-vagina fistulae surgically repaired with local infiltrative anaesthesia. We suggest some selection criteria and clinical guidelines that can facilitate successful treatment by this choice of care.
