Abstract

H-type rectovestibular fistula is a rare anorectal malformation with poor consensus on an optimal operative management. We report our management of a recurrent fistula and review previously described operative techniques. Full excision of the tract without apposing suture lines or perineal body dissection simplifies the repair while minimizing complications and recurrence risk.
