Introduction

  • Rectovestibular/vaginal injuries have a similar pathogenesis to third degree perineal lacerations   Perineum: trauma  , ie injury during foaling, but natural or manually assisted retraction of the foal's foot from the rectum during parturition leaves a fistula between the rectum and the caudal reproductive tract without destroying the perineal body   Vagina: trauma    Vagina: trauma 01 - eventration of intestine  .
  • Surgical preparation, anesthesia, principles of repair and post-operative management of these injuries are the same as for third degree perineal lacerations   Perineum: trauma - repair  but there are different surgical repair techniques available to the surgeon.
