To assess the effect of hysterectomy for nonmalignant conditions on symptoms and quality of life and to identify adverse effects 1 year after surgery.
The Maine Women's Health Study was a prospective cohort study of 418 women ages 25-50 years undergoing hysterectomy for any nonmalignant condition.
Patients recruited from the practices of 63 physicians performing hysterectomy throughout Maine were interviewed at the time of surgery and 3, 6, and 12 months later.
Clinical and hospitalization data were obtained from physician reports and from a statewide hospital discharge data base.
The primary outcomes of interest were symptom relief, changes in quality of life, and the development of new symptoms or problems during the year following surgery.
