This study has been designed as a prospective randomized trial to be performed at Bridgeport Hospital. Patients planning to undergo a laparoscopic or robotically assisted total laparoscopic hysterectomy with or without removal of adnexal structures will be recruited by the Bridgeport Hospital Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery fellows during their preoperative office visit at the Bridgeport Hospital Gynecologic Oncology office. If enrolled, they will be assigned a sequential study identification number. During their preoperative exam, a baseline POP-Q will be performed. Demographic information will be recorded from the electronic medical record.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to learn about the effect of different vaginal cuff closure techniques on pelvic support after laparoscopic hysterectomy and robotic assisted laparoscopic hyst...
American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) advises minimally invasive methods in gynecological surgery to ensure increased benefits to the patient and reduce potential hos...
The aim of this study is to estimate whether the use of the barbed suture facilitates laparoscopic suturing of the vaginal cuff during total laparoscopic hysterectomy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of implementing different types of suturing materials and techniques of vaginal cuff closure in robotic assisted laparoscopic hysterecto...
This randomized phase III trial studies short course vaginal cuff brachytherapy to see how well it works compared with standard of care vaginal cuff brachytherapy in treating patients with...
Recently, it has been suggested that occurrence of post-hysterectomy vaginal cuff dehiscence has increased. Consequently, we evaluated the incidence of vaginal cuff dehiscence after different types of...
To determine the surgical time, suture time, presence of postoperative dyspareunia, and complications that occur after closing the vaginal cuff with a barbed suture compared with conventional suture.
Vaginal cuff dehiscence is an infrequent complication of hysterectomy, with the potential for evisceration and additional morbidity. This review aims to describe the incidence, risk factors, preventat...
To assess the effect of monopolar coagulation vs cut mode during colpotomy at total laparoscopic hysterectomy on vaginal cuff dehiscence.
Microaspiration of secretions around the tracheal cuff is a multifactorial process. Tracheal cuff shape might take a major part in its occurrence. The rationale for producing a taper-shaped cuff is es...
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.
Rapidly destructive shoulder joint and bone disease found mainly in elderly, and predominantly in women. It is characterized by SHOULDER PAIN; JOINT INSTABILITY; and the presence of crystalline CALCIUM PHOSPHATES in the SYNOVIAL FLUID. It is associated with ROTATOR CUFF INJURIES.
The uptake of substances from the VAGINA via the vaginal epithelium/mucosa.
Collection of pooled secretions of the posterior vaginal fornix for cytologic examination.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
