Abstract

Against the background of a renewed global focus on improving women's health and well-being during and after pregnancy, Kopp et al have assessed 290 women at least one year after primary surgical repair for obstetric fistula in Malawi. Following surgery 19.3% of women reported urinary incontinence and 3.5% depressive symptoms. Women who had more severe types of fistula reported poorer quality of life after surgery.
