Abstract
The importance of minimal invasive surgery has increased. Interest in vaginal hysterectomy is rising. Controversy remains regarding the value of conservation of the cervix at hysterectomy. These factors stimulate interest in subtotal vaginal hysterectomy (SVH). SVH is a simple procedure that carries a low risk of morbidity. It can be an option in the treatment of patient with benign conditions of the uterine corpus who desire the retention of the cervix. This desire may arise from concern about possible subsequent bowel, urinary, sexual dysfunction, as well as from other non-clinical issues. We performed SVH in two patients of uterine leiomyoma. Our report includes a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Subtotal vaginal hysterectomy
