The aim of this study is to assess a major complication of total laparoscopic hysterectomy, vaginal dehiscence, with two different colpotomy techniques. With this aim patients to be operated for laparoscopic hysterectomy will be randomized to two different techniques. The colpotomy will be undertaken by 'cut mode' in the first group and 'coagulation mode' in the second group. All of the operations will be preformed by the same surgical at a university hospital. Vaginal dehiscence after surgery is the primary outcome measure.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Pathologic process consisting of a partial or complete disruption of the layers of a surgical wound.
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
An incision made during a surgical procedure.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
