Retraction Note: Laparoscopic repair of vesicovaginal fistulae with a transperitoneal approach at Universitas Gadjah Mada Urological Institute: a case report

The Original Article was published on 25 February 2018

Retraction Note to: Journal of Medical Case Reports (2018) 12:47

The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this case report because Figure 3a and Figure 3b are the same as Figure 2 and Figure 3 respectively in [1] which describes a different patient, and the text of the background and discussion sections shows overlap with [1,2,3,4]. Said Alfin Khalilullah and Prahara Yuri agree with this retraction. Indrawarman Soeroharjo and Raden Danarto have not responded to correspondence from the publisher about this retraction.
