This interactive case discussion addresses the challenging female lower urinary tract disease after pelvic irradiation. Cases discussed will include severe urinary incontinence, vesicovaginal fistula and vesico-vagino-rectal fistulae, following remote pelvic irradiation. Specific focus will be on the pathogenesis, diagnostic approach and decision making and the treatment approach. Evidence based introduction to every case will be presented before the case scenario. A surgical video pertinent to every case will be presented at the end of the case. The course will be concluded with "take home messages" and surgical tips and trick related to vaginal reconstruction in those cases.
