Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality, reliability, and usefulness of laparoscopıc hysterectomy videos on YouTube.

The search results were limited to the first 400 videos. 330 videos that met the inclusion criteria were examined. Viewer parameters such as likes and dislikes, total views, comments, and sources were evaluated. The educational content of the videos was evaluated using the Global Quality Score. Additionally, the popularity of the videos was evaluated using the Video Power Index. Upload sources were categorized as academic institutions and individual users.

Results: Group 1 (low and medium quality videos) had 234 (70.9%) videos and group 2 (good and excellent quality videos) had 96 (20.1%) videos. The average views, likes, and comments in group 1 were 20589±23552 , 86±113 , and 28±31, respectively, while in group 2, they were 25571±24541 , 174±198 , and 49±42 , respectively. When the two groups were compared, no correlation was found between the length and quality of the videos.There was no difference between the groups in terms of the number of dislikes Additionally, the VPI values in group 2 were statistically higher than those in group 1 (p = 0.003).
