Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the trend in uptake of salpingectomy at the time of vaginal hysterectomy after the Clinical Practice Statement of Society for Gynecologic Oncology and to assess the risk of operative/postoperative complications associated with salpingectomy during vaginal hysterectomy.

Material and Methods: Patients who underwent vaginal hysterectomy or vaginal hysterectomy with salpingectomy for uterine prolapsus between January 2010 and January 2018 were analysed. We divided the patients into two groups to see the change in the rate of opportunistic salpingectomy after a systemwide practice recommendation was issued. Group 1 consist of patients who were operated between 2010-2014, before recommendation of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology that favour salpingectomy and Group 2 consist of patients operated after that.

Results: From January 2010 to January 2018, a total of 1224 vaginal hysterectomies were performed. A total of 808 patients under 60 years old were included in the study. There was no difference in operating time, the median estimated blood loss, intraoperative complication and postoperative complication by the performance of salpingectomy (P>0.05). When we examine the changes in the rate of salpingectomy year by year, from 2014, the salpingectomy rates increased, being 4 % in 2013, 7 % in 2015, and 8 % in 2017 onward.

Conclusion: We report an increase in the rate of salpingectomy during vaginal hysterectomies from 3 % to 7.2 % after the recommendation of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology that favour salpingectomy but this increase is not as great as the increase during laparoscopic or abdominal hysterectomies.
