We describe our technique of laparoscopic repair of ureterovaginal fistula in a 34-year-old woman who developed a vaginal leak of urine 15 days after laparoscopic hysterectomy. Laparoscopy and extravesical ureteral reimplantation with a stent was carried out. Cystoscopy and stent removal was done after 6 weeks. The patient was dry. To our knowledge, laparoscopy for the repair of ureterovaginal fistula has not been described. This distressing condition can be corrected laparoscopically with obvious benefit to the patient.
