Abstract
OBJECTIVE
To evaluate the effectiveness and the safety of vaginal total hysterectomy. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of the 110 patients who underwent vaginal total hysterectomy for the indications other than uterine prolapse from August 2001 to September 2002 at our hospital. RESULTS: The average operating time was 48.7 minutes (range from 20 min to 180 min) and the mean uterine weight was 331 gram (range from 60 g to 890 g). The most common indication for hysterectomy was uterine myoma (59%). No serious complications were occurred but conversion to laparotomy was occurred in 1 case. CONCLUSION: Vaginal total hysterectomy would be recommended method for removing uterus even in the absence of prolapse and previous operation history.
