  • Conclusions:

1.frequency of FVV: no figures in the in annual reports of the visited areas.

2.FVV is nowhere listed in the statistics. Estimates differ by area: the fistula is considered either as non existant either as rather rare.

3. possible cause of the FVV is assigned by order of importance: 

  -a late reference to the level where cesarian section can be performed for financial reasons.

  -a late reference to the level where cesarian section can be peformed by lack of expertise at the primary care level 

  -a late call for help at the patient's level for financial reasons, or no means of transport
