Manual of New Hysterectomy Techniques

by Liselotte Mettler

This book provides a survey of the technical possibilities for hysterectomies in the first decade of the 21st century. This compilation of chapters by renowned gynaecological surgeons focuses on vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomy in benign and malignant disease of the uterus. The decision to perform a hysterectomy is always taken jointly by the patient and her gynaecologist. Culture, religion and lifestyle can influence this decision. All hysterectomy procedures – laparotomic; vaginal; laparoscopic subtotal, total and radical approaches – are well described in the literature and every gynaecologist is free to select, within the limits of “good standard practice”, the hysterectomy modality he/she chooses. This decision is also influenced by other factors, such as the location of the hospital, the instrumentation available and whether the patient can be seen again as an outpatient.
