  1. Subtotal hysterectomy in modern gynecology : A decision analysis. Discussion.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of the Central Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Houston, Texas (USA), 1996/10/17.


    Our purpose was to compare the risks and benefits of subtotal (supracervical) hysterectomy with those of total hysterectomy in women at low risk for cervical cancer.


    A decision analysis was performed.

    Baseline probabilities for operative and postoperative morbidity, mortality, and long-term quality of life were established for subtotal and total hysterectomy.


    Operative complication rates and ranges for total abdominal hysterectomy were infection 3.0% (3.0% to 20.0%), hemorrhage 2.0% (2.0% to 15.4%), and adjacent organ injury 1.0% (0.7% to 2.0%). Those for subtotal hysterectomy were infection 1.4% (1.0% to 5.0%), hemorrhage 2.0% (0.7% to 4.0%), and adjacent organ injury 0.7% (0.6% to 1.0%). Operative mortality, the risk for development of cervicovaginal cancer, and long-term adverse effects on sexual or vesicourethral function were low in both groups.


    Recently proposed benefits from subtotal hysterectomy are not well proven.

    Total hysterectomy remains the procedure of choice for most women.
