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

Plastic surgeons are often consulted by other surgical teams for management of wound dehiscence following abdominopelvic surgery.
Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been a major advance in the management of open wounds, especially in orthopedic trauma surgery. Due to the success of NPWT, surgeons began using NPWT on clos...
To assess the effect of monopolar coagulation vs cut mode during colpotomy at total laparoscopic hysterectomy on vaginal cuff dehiscence.
To assess whether negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) reduced complications such as wound infection, dehiscence, seroma/hematoma, skin necrosis/blistering, and bleeding compared with non-NPWT treat...
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.
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)
An incision made during a surgical procedure.
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
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...
