Abstract:   (1712 Views)
Laparoscopically-assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) was performed in fifteen patients without invasive cancer. Indications for hysterectomy were myomas, abnormal uterine bleeding unresponsive to hormonal treatment and dilatation and curettage, chronic pelvic pain with first degree uterine prolapse and possible adenomyosis, and dysplasia and ovarian cyst in postmenopausal years. No significant complication was observed during the operation or postoperatively. This report proves that minimally invasive procedures (LA VH) can replace conventional hysterectomies in experienced hands.
