Abstract

Obstructive anomalies of the vagina that impair uterovaginal outflow and lead to hematocolpos have conventionally been corrected with surgery, but emerging nonsurgical therapies may offer an attractive alternative. The present report describes a method of serial balloon dilation over a transvaginally inserted guide wire to create a durable outflow tract from the uterus to the lower vagina. This technique was successfully used to treat one case each of vaginal atresia and transverse vaginal septum without the immediate need for surgery.
