Hysterectomy with special reference to the technics of the vaginal route by Frederick Holme Wiggin Download PDF EPUB FB2

In recent years advances in laparoscopic technologies have led to renewed interest in the vaginal approach to hysterectomy, which has many proven benefits for patients.

This volume, dedicated to explaining and promoting the vaginal route of hysterectomy, is written and edited by an international team of experts and provides a much-needed source of up-to-date information and instruction 1/5(1).

Despite well-documented benefits of vaginal hysterectomy in terms of lower complication rates, shorter hospital stay and convalescence, and better quality of life, therefore, vaginal hysterectomy is preferred when either vaginal or abdominal route is clinically appropriate, the only formal guideline available is the uterine size guide line by Cited by: 3.

INTRODUCTION. Hysterectomy can be performed vaginally, abdominally, laparoscopically, or with robot-assisted laparoscopy. Hysterectomy can also be performed by combining two of these four routes, such as in laparoscopically-assisted vaginal hysterectomy or laparoscopic hysterectomy combined with a mini-laparotomy to remove the uterine specimen from the peritoneal.

Once a hysterectomy is indicated for the treatment of gynecologic disease, the surgeon must determine the safest and most efficient route—abdominal, vaginal, or laparoscopic-assisted vaginal. Here, the authors outline each approach, including patient selection, technical pearls.

Vagina. Vagina can be transected 1–2 cm from the vaginocervical junction in the case of the modified radical vaginal hysterectomy (RVH) (line A) and 3–4 cm or more in the case of the classical RVH (line B).

Vaginal hysterectomy for undescended and enlarged uterus is a safe and accepted mode of managementl. It has been said that up to 80% of the cases of hysterectomy can be carried out by the vaginal route instead of abdominally.

This is because the vaginal route is superior to the abdominal route in terms of post-operative recovery'. Sheth SS, Malpani AN. Vaginal hysterectomy following previous cesarean section.

Hysterectomy is a common surgical indication for uterine pathology that resists medical treatment. It is so true that laparotomy and the abdominal route remain a frequent and a standard procedure for gynecologists.

When it comes to minimally invasive surgical. More thanhysterectomies are performed in the United States each year. 1 Although recent data have shown an increase in rates of minimally invasive hysterectomy, the majority of hysterectomies continue to be performed through abdominal routes.

This is in spite of a large body of evidence supporting that vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomy are associated with less infectious. Because the vaginal vault is closed in the same way as in a classic vaginal hysterectomy, no differences in the incidence of dyspareunia are to be expected.

As was the case for this study protocol, sexual abstinence should be recommended for 6 to 8 weeks, as is the recommendation for conventional transvaginal surgery [7].

Defining “Technically Feasible” In the ACOG Committee Opinion No. the Committee on Gynecologic Practice concluded, “Vaginal hysterectomy is the approach of choice whenever feasible, based on its well-documented advantages and lower complication rates.”1 An important element to advancing the frequency of vaginal hysterectomy is a discussion of factors affecting the feasibility of.

In choosing a hysterectomy technique in women with benign gynecological conditions without prolapse, there is no doubt that the vaginal route is safest, least invasive, economical, cosmetic, and natural route (Table 3).

10 This has the best scientific evidence in its favor and is the route of choice for most women. Unfortunately, however, the. Vaginal Hysterectomy The surgeon removes your uterus through the vaginal opening.

This technique is most often used to treat uterine prolapse, or when vaginal repairs are necessary for related conditions. Vaginal hysterectomy cannot treat all conditions because the size and position of the vagina limits access to the uterus and surgical site.

Using the techniques described, the reader should be able to perform more than 90% of all hysterectomies through the vaginal route. The appendices cover several important topics, including a unique view of the history of vaginal hysterectomy, a comparison of other techniques, a description of the technique of laparoscopic-assisted vaginal Author: Howard E.

Herrell. Nonavailability or nonaccessibility of laparoscope or laparoscopists in 80% of world population makes VH a popular choice. In resource constraint country like India,we cannot rely on costly gazette based surgeries. Vaginal route is the least invasive, most safe, and economical form amongst the available routes and techniques of hysterectomy.

Although hysterectomy is indicated, there is no access to the surgeons or facilities needed for VH or LH, and referral is not feasible. Surgeons expert in either VH or LH techniques consider the vaginal or laparoscopic approach to be unsafe or unreasonable because of uterine disease or adhesions significantly distorting the anatomy.

The authors also concluded that when vaginal hysterectomy is not possible, laparoscopic hysterectomy can obviate the need for an abdominal hysterectomy, but require a longer surgical time (mean difference of minutes), without imposing any additional benefit to the vaginal route of access (Johnson et al., ).

Hysterectomy is a major surgical procedure that has risks and benefits, and affects the hormonal balance and overall health of patients. Because of this, hysterectomy is normally recommended as a last resort after pharmaceutical or other surgical options have been exhausted to remedy certain intractable and severe uterine/reproductive system conditions.

Vaginal Hysterectomy Vaginal hysterectomy dates back to the ancient times. There is reference that vaginal hysterectomy was perfor-med by Themison of Athens in 50 BC3. It is known that the procedure was performed by Soranus in Greece, years AD, by removing an inverted uterus that had be-come gangrenous3.

In the writings of the 11th century, the. vaginal route will reduce the need for laparoscopic experts and equipment in large parts of the world.

In the absence of a specific contraindication, not taking the vaginal route because of obesity is a lame and chronic excuse, from chronic evaders of the vaginal route for hysterectomy who need to improve their knowledge and technique.

A hysterectomy is a surgical operation to remove the uterus, an organ located in the female pelvis. Attached to the uterus on either side is a single fallopian tube and one ovary.
