Chu Yeop Huh, Sang Wook Yi
Abstract
OBJECTIVE
Intrafascial vaginal hystrectomy(IVH) is an intrafascial cylindriform enucleation of the cervix and supracervical amputation of the uterus through vagina, leaving the highly vascularized extrafascial cervical tissue and corresponding nerves intact. The supracervical amputation of the uterus through vagina and intrafascial cylindriform enucleation of cervix enable to perform an minimal invasive surgery and organ-preserving surgery. Pelvic floor support is maintained and sexual sensation is preserved. Physical stress to the patient is minimalized. Our purpose is to evaluate the outcomes of IVH. METHOD: 21 patients were performed IVH from January 1996 to July 1998. RESULT: The mean age was 43.4+7.2 years and the mean parity was 2.6+0.8. The mean operation time was 116.1+21.4 minutes and the mean postoperative hemoglobin change was 2.0+1.6gm/dL. The mean postoperative hopitalization time was 8.2 + 2.7days. CONCLUSION: The IVH is an operation technique for the patients who are sexually active and want to remain their uterus.
Key Words: Uterus, Intrafascial vaginal hysterectomy (IVH)
