Sukhadiya 1.Preparation and positioning
  9. 9. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>Manipulators </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RUMI Uterine Manipulator </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>VCare Uterine Manipulator </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Elevator (ConMed Endosurgery, Utica, NY) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SUKHADIYA MANIPULATOR </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cheap </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Easily available </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Very easy to use </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Additional rotational movement </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Helpful in minimising use of instruments during Dissection </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Helpful in bladder dissection </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Helpful during separation cervix from vagina </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Procedure of insertion of manipulator: </li></ul><ul><li>---Important step for the further step </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 2. Insertion of uterine manipulator .
  10. 10. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>Entry the abdomen </li></ul><ul><li>Primary port only blind procedure during laparoscopy </li></ul><ul><li>closed method vs open method </li></ul><ul><li>negative pressure in insufflators – intra-peritoneal </li></ul><ul><li>intra peritoneal pressure of 12mmHg </li></ul><ul><li>First inspection should done underneath structures of entry side. </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary ports site ( depend on size of uterus ) </li></ul><ul><li>Under vision </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 3. Abdominal entry and trocar placement .
  11. 11. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>The infundibulopelvic ligament(IP) or the ovarian ligament is initially desiccated with a reusable bipolar cautery. </li></ul><ul><li>to stay close to the ovary as this helps to avoid the pelvic sidewall during ovarian removal & ascending uterine vessel during ovarian dissection. </li></ul><ul><li>take special care to dissect the parametrial veins that run between the ovary and the round ligament as these can be quite tortuous and tend to bleed if left unattended . </li></ul><ul><li>The IP ligament or utero-ovarian ligament is then transected close to the ovary using the scissor or Harmonic Scalpel </li></ul><ul><li>Position of manipulator helpful in maximum visualization and proper traction of IP ligament that helpful in dissection of fallopian tube, round ligament, IP ligament & broad ligament by the help of only bipolar and scissor or bipolar and harmonic scissor. </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 4. Dissection of attachments of uterus
  12. 12. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>separate the anterior and posterior leaves of the broad ligament . </li></ul><ul><li>Posterior leave separate up to medial to Utero-sacral ligament. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to find the correct plane ; this is where the peritoneum separates easily with gentle manipulation </li></ul><ul><li>identify the vesico-uterine peritoneal fold and continue the dissection anteriorly, thereby mobilizing the bladder off the lower uterine segment. </li></ul><ul><li>prior cesarean delivery, this area may be scarred and it is important to stay relatively high on the uterus during the dissection. </li></ul><ul><li>if fat is encountered a reevaluation of the route of dissection is advised because the fat belongs to the bladder; this may indicate that the dissection is moving too close to the bladder </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 5.Mobilization of Bladder & dissection of posterior peritoneum.
  13. 13. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>Due to a wide variety in anatomy & in the course of the uterine vessels, we find it helpful to initially skeletonized them. </li></ul><ul><li>Note that pushing cephalad with the uterine manipulator helps to move the uterine vessels away from the ureter. </li></ul><ul><li>then desiccate the ascending uterine vessels with the bipolar cautery at the level of internal cervical os. </li></ul><ul><li>Complete desiccation of the vessels can be assessed visually by observing the bubbles coming and going during this process; when the bubbles stop forming its indicate that vessel is desiccated. </li></ul><ul><li>safe to transect with the scissor or Harmonic scalpel. </li></ul><ul><li>uterine artery should not be desiccate before separation of bladder. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to take the uterine vessels high and then dissect medially to the uterine vessels down to the cup. </li></ul><ul><li>This averts ureteral injury and provides a healthy vascular pedicle that can be safely desiccated further in the event of bleeding. </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 6. Secure the uterine artery.
  14. 14. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>Identify the vaginal fornices while pushing Plunger of the uterine manipulator. </li></ul><ul><li>Identified the Plunger of the manipulator around vaginal cuff. </li></ul><ul><li>Superficial bipolar cauterization over the vault </li></ul><ul><li>Make incision over the vault by use of mono-polar energy or harmonic scalpel up to visualization of plunger. </li></ul><ul><li>Then make full dissection on the edge of plunger by help of bipolar and mono polar or bipolar and scissor or harmonic scaple. </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 7.Separate the cervix from the vagina .
  15. 15. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>Pull the uterus into the vagina & same time pushing the vault inward with fingers so that to avoid the vault injury. </li></ul><ul><li>The uterus can remain there to maintain pneumo-peritoneum during suturing. </li></ul><ul><li>If the uterus is too large to removed through the vagina, it can be removed carefully by morcellator. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important to keep the tip of the morcellator in clear view at all times. </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya 8.Remove the uterus and adenexal tissue

  18. 18. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>10 steps </li></ul><ul><li>illustrated above are not inevitable to be an absolute truth, </li></ul><ul><li>but </li></ul><ul><li>somewhat a true and tested method </li></ul><ul><li>that has served us well to </li></ul><ul><li>safely accomplish this procedure. </li></ul>Dr Mehul V. Sukhadiya
  19. 19. <ul><li>Are great things ever done smoothly? </li></ul><ul><li>Time, </li></ul><ul><li>patience, and </li></ul><ul><li>determined will must show </li></ul>
  20. 20. Technique to simplify TLH <ul><li>Take Home Message </li></ul><ul><li>Slow but steady start attitude towards laparoscopic surgery </li></ul><ul><li>Initially consider simple cases </li></ul><ul><li>Make the team competent as is a team work </li></ul><ul><li>Clam and quite during surgery </li></ul><ul><li>Follow the every steps systematically to simplify TLH </li></ul><ul><li>Take lesson from every surgery by reviewing recorded system repeatedly. </li></ul>Dr Mehul V.
