  • Total pelvic exenterations (TPE) are high morbidity procedures, with up to 38% of patients experiencing a major complication after TPE surgery. We report the case of a 69-year-old woman with a sigmoid conduit-neovaginal fistula who presented with new onset continuous vaginal leakage and decreased urostomy output 3 months post-op from a TPE. We highlight the presentation, diagnosis, conservative management, and surgical management of conduit-vaginal fistulas.
