Colovesical fistula is an uncommon complication of diverticulitis. We present our technique of a laparoscopic approach for treatment of vesicosigmoid fistulas and review the available published literature. We believe that a laparoscopic approach is a feasible and advantageous alternative for the treatment of colovesical fistulas, with low morbidity and short hospital stay.
