When Removal of uterus is mandated? (Dr. Dilpreet K)

  • Uterine, cervical and ovarian cancer
  • Abnormal Uterine bleeding not amenable to medical treatment
  • Dysmenorrhea of severe nature
  • Prolapsed pelvic organs
  • Large fibroid/ bulky uterine leiomyoma
  • Complication rate: 24.5% for vaginal hysterectomy, 42.8% for abdominal hysterectomy
  • Chronic AUB, desirous to retain uterus, uterine removal is inappropriate
  • Early age removal might result in health issues like cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, hip fracture, neurological and psychiatric disorders because of the hormonal disequilibrium
  • Need for optimal intervention with least morbidity
