Vaginal Hysterectomy

Compare 17 clinics

Vaginal hysterectomy is a type of hysterectomy procedure, during which uterus and other organs are removed through patient’s vagina rather than through an incision in the abdomen (abdominal hysterectomy) or with laparoscopy (laparoscopic hysterectomy). It is generally agreed that vaginal hysterectomy surgery enables quicker recovery from hysterectomy and do not cause as many complications as an abdominal hysterectomy.

The technique of vaginal hysterectomy allows performing of different types of hysterectomy, such as:
• Subtotal hysterectomy – Only patient’s uterus is removed. This is the most limited type of hysterectomy surgery.
• Total hysterectomy – Both patient’s uterus and cervix are removed.
• Radical hysterectomy – In this hysterectomy procedure patient’s uterus, cervix, surrounding tissues, and glands, as well as parts of the vagina, are removed.
• Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – radical and total hysterectomy may also include the removal of fallopian tubes and ovaries.

Sometimes, vaginal hysterectomy may be supported by laparoscope, resulting in so-called laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy. Doctors who do not prefer total laparoscopic hysterectomy due to lack of experience or other reasons may still use laparoscopy to have a clear sight of the uterus and other organs while performing the vaginal hysterectomy.

Vaginal Hysterectomy Candidates

Vaginal hysterectomy may be performed for a number of reasons, including:
• Abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain without a clear reason – doctors may decide for hysterectomy as a way of solving some gynaecological problems.
• Cancer of many kinds, including uterine cancer and cervical cancer.
As for why vaginal hysterectomy is favored over abdominal hysterectomy, the reason is a lesser amount of pain as well as shorter hysterectomy recovery time.

Am I Suitable for Vaginal Hysterectomy?

Vaginal hysterectomy is not the first choice when there is a suspicion of cancers in cervix or uterus. Additionally, treatment of endometriosis is usually performed through an abdominal hysterectomy. Finally, not always it is possible to remove the uterus through vagina due to its size – in this case, doctors will decide for abdominal hysterectomy.

Scars after Vaginal Hysterectomy

Unlike abdominal hysterectomy, a vaginal hysterectomy means no visible scar since doctors remove organs through one’s vagina. It may be a big advantage, assuming that medical situation or doctor’s experience does not require the abdominal hysterectomy.

Vaginal Hysterectomy Risks and Complications

While vaginal hysterectomy positively affects hysterectomy recovery time and minimalises the risk of infection due to lack of open cuts, it has also negative sides. These include a higher risk of damage to other organs.
