Laproscopic extirpation of the uterus
Removal of the uterus or hysterectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures in the field of gynecology.
Extirpation of the uterus is an operation in which the uterus is amputated along with the cervix. This type of operation is used when the removal of the uterus is the most optimal solution for maintaining the health of the rest of the female body.
How is the extirpation of the uterus carried out
Laparotomy. This is the traditional way of performing surgery. For laparotomy, an opening of the abdominal cavity is used. Laparotomy is used in situations where the surgeon needs a good view and the ability to freely perform manipulations.
Laparoscopy. This type of intervention is quite effective and less traumatic. To perform it, a laparoscope is used: a device with a light source, a video camera and surgical manipulator.
Laparoscopic hysterectomy (extirpation) is the removal of the uterus through several punctures in the abdominal wall. The operation is performed through small incisions - 0.5-1 cm, through which a laparoscope is inserted - an optical device with a light source connected to it.
The surgeon gets the opportunity to see the abdominal organs on the monitor with high image quality. Surgical intervention is performed using special instruments that are inserted into the abdominal cavity through additional incisions.
The laparoscopic approach is less traumatic, as it is performed through small incisions, provides a good cosmetic effect, is easier for patients to tolerate, after which anesthesia is practically not required, and the hospitalization period is reduced to 3-4 days.
A good view of the pelvic organs is provided by an enlarged image on a high-resolution monitor, which reduces the risk of intraoperative and postoperative complications. This is especially important for concomitant adhesions, endometriosis, ovarian cysts.
Indications for laparoscopic removal of the uterus are the following pathological conditions:
- large uterine myoma (more than 12 weeks) or fast-growing uterine myoma;
-atypical endometrial hyperplasia;
-prolapse (prolapse) or prolapse of the uterus in combination with other pathologies of the uterus;
- cancer of the body of the uterus
The gynecologist makes the decision on the need to remove the uterus based on the results of a comprehensive diagnosis.
Recommendations for patients during the rehabilitation period:
- to limit physical and sports activities, but physical inactivity is not encouraged. You need to move more, in order to avoid the development of adhesive disease;
- to observe sexual rest;
The following are considered relative contraindications:
- obesity 3-4 degrees,
- transferred abdominal operations,
- other reasons that complicate the technical implementation of the surgical intervention.
