The purpose of this study was to identify factors that may contribute to anxiety of patients undergoing total abdominal hysterectomy(TAH) or total laparoscopic hysterectomy(TLH) before and after the operation. Thus, we aimed to learn whether anxiety levels change according to the type of hysterectomy.


Hysterectomy is the most common gynecological procedure worldwide. . There has been a increasing interest towards to more minimally invasive procedures in the past decade. Hysterectomy operation anxiety is a complex phenomenon affected by various parameters. Patients' anxiety may be affected by their age, gender, educational status,type of operation and personality. Each patient's anxiety was measured using Spielberger's State-Trait Anxiety Inventory immediately before, immediately after the operation.
