Abstract

Classic intrafascial subtotal hysterectomy (CISH) technique is one method of intrafascial supracervical or subtotal hysterectomy that was performed by laparoscopy in Kiel, Germany, from 1989 until 2005 and has then been replaced by laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (LASH) or (LSH) technique, we intend to give in this article a review on both valuable technologies. Many clinicians do not like subtotal hysterectomy at all; however, in our time of understanding that less might be more effective than more for some patients, we are happy to stress the fact of this surgical technology and are giving the background of its development.
