A vaginal hysterectomy is appropriate only for conditions such as uterine prolapse, endometrial hyperlapsia, or cervical dysplasia. The woman will need to have her legs raised up in a stirrup device throughout the procedure.

During a total abdominal hysterectomy, the doctor removes the uterus, including the cervix. The scar may be horizontal or vertical, depending on the reason the procedure is performed, and the size of the area being treated.

A laparoscope is a very thin viewing tube with a magnifying glass-like device at the end of it. Certain women would be best served by having laparoscopy used during vaginal hysterectomy because it allows the upper abdomen to be carefully inspected during surgery.</li></li></ul><li>(LAVH) Cont.<br /><ul><li>Certain women would be best served by having laparoscopy used during vaginal hysterectomy because it allows the upper abdomen to be carefully inspected during surgery.
