Hysterectomy: what makes the difference?

April 28, 2010

Hysterectomy is one of the gynaecological operations performed most commonly. 

World-wide, approximately 75% of the hysterectomies are performed abdominally for various indications. 

Hysterectomy is an effective standard procedure when treating dysfunctional uterine bleeding, uterine myomatosis, adenomyosis,endometriosis, and other benign diseases 

Minimal-invasive operation techniques, if indicated and performed correctly, have considerable advantages for the patient. 

Compared with other conventional and laparoscopic methods, the Lift laparoscopic total hysterectomy
has the advantages concerning variables like 

  • Operative time 
  • blood loss 
  • intraoperative and postoperative complications 
  • postoperative pain 
  • Back to normal work 
  • vaginal discharge

In our experience of more than 400 cases of the Gasless Lift-laparoscopic Total Hysterectomy Operative Time (min) was on an average only 67 min (range 41 – 123) Blood Loss (mL) was just 90 ml (range 50-350) Blood Units were not requierd at all There were only 1 intraoperative Complication Postoperative Pain Duration (h) just 15 hours ( range 4-25hrs) Hospital Stay lasted only 3 days (range1-8 days) Back to Work/Normal Activity was in 12 days range 4-28 days) Vaginal Discharge (d) lasted only for 7 days (range 5-14 days) The other advantages include minimal tissue damage using unique and for Lift-Laparoscopy designed bipolar scissors and clamps, no side effects of carbon dioxide, so no shoulder pain, removal of even large sized uteri possible, more secure cauterization of pedicles utilising special bipolar instruments, strength of sutures due to the use of conventional instruments and suture material, appropriate tissue handling resulting in negligible chance of postop adhesions. If you need a hysterectomy we at EndoGyn offer you the unique technique of gasless lift-laparoscopic hysterectomy which is minimally invasive surgical procedure with benefits like personalised care, negligible tissue damage, no discomfort, short hospital stay, quick recovery, and an adhesion free postoperative period. All this surely will make this major decision a pleasant experience for our patients.
