    16. 16. Cancer <ul><li>Cancer : meatstasis from nongynecologic sites. </li></ul><ul><li>Colorectal carcinoma pts : consider TAH with BSO due to risk of either synchronous pelvic cancers or occult metastasis. </li></ul>

Benign ovarian tumor <ul><li>Benign ovarian tumor : persistent of symptomatic . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Peri or post menopause: decision whether Ut be removed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Group of adnexectomy with hysterectomy : increase in operative morbidity, estimated blood loss, length of hospital stay compared to Group of adnexetomy only </li></ul></ul>
    18. 18. Vaginal hysterectomy versus abdominal hysterectomy <ul><li>75% : abdominal hysterectomy </li></ul><ul><li>No specific criteria determine route of hysterectomy </li></ul><ul><li>Ovarall complicaton rate : TVH 24.5/1000 vs, TAH 42.8/1000 </li></ul><ul><li>Risk for one or more complication: TAH 1.7 times vs TVH </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Risk for febrile morbidity : TAH 2.1 배 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hemorrhage requiring transfusion : TAH 1.9 배 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If feasible TVH preferred approach </li></ul>
    19. 19. Supracervical hysterectomy <ul><li>Ix : vague </li></ul><ul><li>Endometriosis c obliteration of anterior & posterior cul-de-sac </li></ul><ul><li>Cesarean hysterectomy when Cx fully dilated & difficult to identify </li></ul><ul><li>Cx can almost always be removed. </li></ul>
    20. 20. LAVH <ul><li>Presence of pelvic adhesions cannot predict based on Hx or P/Ex </li></ul><ul><li>Criteria for selection of patients for LAVH vs abdominal hysterectomy : not clearly estabilsihed. </li></ul><ul><li>No advantage of LAVH over traditional vaginal hysterectomy </li></ul><ul><li>Not reduce perioperative morbidity & cost higher </li></ul>
    21. 21. LAVH Ix <ul><li>Endometriosis </li></ul><ul><li>Known pelvic adhesive disease </li></ul><ul><li>Adnexal mass that require hysterectomy </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of uterine mobility </li></ul><ul><li>LAVH preferable in pt. c uterine mobility limited ☞ uncertain. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Supporting structures of uterus : uterosacral ligament & lower cardinal complex not transected with laparoscopic approach. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Transected of uteroovarian ligament, round ligament, broad ligament : not improve mobility. </li></ul></ul>
