The objective of our study was to investigate the incidence of hysterectomy by age, indication and surgical method employed during 1987-1989 in Finland, corrected by « uteri or cervix at risk » population.
Three years (1987-1989) of patient discharges from the Finnish Hospital Discharge Register, which covers all Finnish hospitals including the few private ones, was used.
Patients represented all Finnish adult women (approximately 2 000 000).
Approximately 9000 hysterectomies are performed annually in Finland.
The annual incidence of hysterectomy was 348/100 000 women (most among women aged 45-49), and after correction for « uteri or cervix at risk » this rose by 11% to 390/100 000.
