Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the results of 300 cases of total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) performed by the same surgeon.

Material and methods: During the study period, a total of 300 TLH operations were performed between January 2017 and December 2018. Demographic characteristics, indications of hysterectomy, uterine weights, intra-operative and post-operative complications, duration of the operation, length of hospital stay, blood loss of patients, visual analogue scores and amount of analgesics needed were retrospectively evaluated. Complications were analysed and compared with literature.

Results: Parameters analysed for 300 patients included in the study were as follows: mean age 47.82 ± 6.18 years, mean parity 3.4 ± 2.0 (0–11), BMI 27.41 ± 4.36 (kg/m²), mean uterine weight 367.67 ± 266.21 g (50–1600 g), mean operative time 89.07 ± 37.94 min (30–240 min), mean hospital stay 54.37 ± 21.95 h (24–168 h) and total complication rate 28 (9.3%). Conversion to open surgery was required in 29 (9.7%) patients. The level of technical difficulty and existence of prior abdominal surgery were associated with a higher risk of complications and conversions to laparotomy.

Conclusion: Total laparoscopic hysterectomy is a well-designed surgical procedure for the management of benign gynaecological conditions, and after adequate training, it seems to be a safe and effective procedure for patients.
