To describe patient characteristics and diagnoses associated with hysterectomy in the United States from 1988-1990 using data from the National Hospital Discharge Survey.
We analyzed data from the National Hospital Discharge Survey, an annual probability sample of discharges from nonfederal, short-stay hospitals in the United States.
A population-based sample of all women aged 15 years or older in the United States civilian population who had a hysterectomy during 1988-1990 was examined to characterize factors associated with hysterectomy: patients' age and race, diagnoses, surgical approach, and oophorectomy.
Approximately 1.7 million women had a hysterectomy during 1988-1990.
The highest rates-100.5 hysterectomies per 10,000 women-were for women aged 30-54 years.
