Endometriosis Part 57 – What is a laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH)?

As we mentioned in earlier articles at the last stage of the menstrual cycle, a layer of endometriosis in the uterus known as menstrual blood is usually expelled, but instead some endometriosis tissue grows somewhere in the body and causes endometriosis. Endometriosis also responds to hormonal signals from the monthly menstrual cycle, producing, breaking down and shedding tissue during menstruation. If the woman has exhausted other treatments without seeing an improvement in endometriosis, or if the endometrial tissue has become cancerous, her doctor may suggest certain types of hysterectomy. In this article, we will discuss what laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH) is

I. Definition:

As we know, a laparoscopic copy is a medical instrument used by a doctor to view and remove tissue from the operating table. The thin instrument enters the abdominal cavity through an incision in the abdominal wall. Laparoscopic hysterectomy is an operation that removes certain organs or tissues from the abdomen. It has been used to support vaginal hysterectomy since the late 1980s. We’ll discuss vaginal hysterectomy in the next article.

II. Types of laparoscopic hysterectomy:

  1. Type I.
    Used to visualize and diagnose the condition of diseases of the pelvic organs and to determine whether surgery is required or not.
  2. Type II
    If abnormalities in the pelvic organs were found during laparoscopy, e.g. B. implants, adhesions or endometrial cysts. The surgeon can remove it through an incision and then perform a vaginal hysterectomy.
  3. Type III
    Before performing a vaginal hysterectomy, surgical hysterectomy helps remove the ligaments and sew the blood supply to the uterus through laparoscopic incision. The uterus is then removed by vaginal hysterectomy.
  4. Type IV
    The entire operation is performed using surgical laparoscopy, with the uterus removed through the vagina, with a vaginal incision sewn from above through a small incision in the abdomen.

III. Risks

  1. Bleeding caused by the medical device during operation.
  2. Injury to neighboring organs, which is also caused by a medical device during the operation.
  3. Infection
  4. Anesthesia risk
