Vaginal hysterectomy: remarks on 157 cases observed in the department of Obstetric and Gynecology at the 'G. Moscati' Hospital of Aversa. A retrospective study on 298 patients who underwent hysterectomy at the Department of Obstetric and Gynecology at the 'G. Moscati' Hospital of Aversa is presented. Data show that the incidence of vaginal hysterectomies was 52,68% of the total hysterectomies in the examined period (157 vaginal hysterectomies and 141 abdominal hysterectomies). Genital prolapse, was the most frequent indication for surgery (60% of the cases). Mean post-operative hospitalization was 7,8 ± 2,3 days for abdominal hysterectomy, 5,3 ± 1,9 days for vaginal hysterectomy without plastics and 7,6 ± 2,1 days for vaginal hysterectomy with vaginal plastics. In 103 out of 157 (65,6%) adnexectomy or vaginal plastics were also performed. The aim of our work is to point out the low incidence of intra- and post-operative complications which confirms the effectiveness of the operatory technique. Uterine size, intra-operative bleeding and post-micturition bladder residue have been evaluated. Our data suggest the importance of vaginal hysterectomy for many surgical gynecopathy. The reduced operative trauma and the low incidence of complications also consent to remove associate gynecopathies.
