Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the surgical outcomes of women undergoing vaginal hysterectomy with and without morcelation. Patients and method: Between December 1999 and December 2000, 216 women underwent vaginal hysterectomy without laparoscopic assistance at the Departement of Gynecology of Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Paris. The patients were divided into two groups: 114 of them underwent vaginal hysterectomies with morcelation whereas 102 underwent vaginal hysterectomies without morcelation, The two groups were compared as to demographic data, total complications, operative time, hospital stay length and peri-operative hemoglobin concentration change. Results: Although women undergoing morcelation were significantly younger (mean 49 versus 52, p = 0.01) and less parous (mean 1.9 versus 2.3, p = 0.03), there were no significant differences in other surgical or anesthesic risks factors, including weight, BMI, nulliparity and preexisting surgical diseases. Mean uterine weight was significantly greater in those undergoing morcelation (331 versus 110 g, p < 0.001); operative time was increased in the group which had undergone morcelation (331 versus 110 g, p < 0.001). There were no significant differences between the two groups with respect to peri-operative hemoglobin concentration change or hospital stay length. Finally, the rate of surgical complication was similar in the two groups (17.5 versus 21.5%). Conclusion: Although vaginal hysterectomy requires an increase in operative time, morcelation at the time of vaginal hysterectomy is safe and facilitates the vaginal removal of enlarged uteri without increasing peri-operative morbidity.
