In this video, vaginal hysterectomy procedure is shown. Vaginal hysterectomy is a procedure in which the uterus is surgically removed through the vagina. One or both ovaries and fallopian tubes may be removed during the procedure as well; removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes is called bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. A vaginal approach may be used if the uterus is not greatly enlarged, and if the reason for the surgery is not related to cancer.
Causes of vaginal hysterectomy –
- Abnormal uterine bleeding
- Pelvic organ prolapsed
- Endometrial hyperplasia
Procedure – Vaginal hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus, usually performed by a gynecologist. The uterus is a reproductive organ in the lower abdomen. During the vaginal hysterectomy the heart rate, blood pressure, blood loss, and respiration of the patient is closely observed throughout the surgery. The patients at first are given general or spinal anesthesia plus sedation so that they feel no pain.
During vaginal hysterectomy, several small incisions (cuts) are made in the abdominal wall through which slender metal tubes known as trocars are inserted to provide passage for a laparoscope and other microsurgical tools. The laparoscope acts as a tiny telescope. A camera attached to it provides a continuous image that is magnified and projected onto a television screen for viewing. During laparoscopy, other small cuts are made in the abdomen. These allow your doctor to insert other devices to help move organs into view, perform parts of the surgery, and remove the uterus through the vagina. In the course of vaginal hysterectomy, the uterus is detached from the ligaments that attach it to other structures in the pelvis using the laparoscopic tools. If the Fallopian tubes and ovaries are to be removed, they are also detached from their ligaments and blood supply. The organs and tissue are then removed through an incision made in the vagina.
After surgery, patients are transferred to the recovery room (also known as the post-anesthesia care unit) so that they can be monitored while waking up. Most patients will then be transferred to a hospital room and will stay one to two days.
Recovery post surgery
Soon after a vaginal hysterectomy, essential fluids and food are administered to the patient. The nutrition of the patient is normally administered by intravenous means.
Pain relievers are given as required, mostly by intravenous, intramuscular or by pills, depending on the severity of the pain.
Patients are encouraged to try and as far as possible, to resume everyday activities, but slowly and steadily.
The patient is not allowed to lift heavy weights or do any kind of strenuous exercise.
There should be no stress on the back and pelvic region, if the patient is recovering from a vaginal hysterectomy.
The woman recovering from a vaginal hysterectomy must be alert for any signs of complications resulting from the procedure. Excessive nausea, fatigue, weakness, pain in abdominal, back or pelvic region and excessive bleeding from the vagina should be immediately reported to the physician.
