Closure of the Uterine Artery at Its Origin vs at the Cervix: a Randomized Trial

2019-11-13 17:56:46 | BioPortfolio


One of the fundamental surgical steps in patients undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy is the closure of the uterine artery, this vessel provides the greatest blood supply to the uterus.

This step can be done in two ways: the surgeon can choose to interrupt the blood flow by closing the uterine artery in its last part, close to the uterus, or the surgeon can develop the anatomical spaces around the uterus into the deep pelvis, closing it to its origin, maintaining a minimally invasive approach in both cases.

Scientific research has tried to establish whether one of the two modalities is the best in reducing intraoperative blood loss and possible complications, but currently there is not enough evidence to recommend an approach rather than another.

We have therefore decided to evaluate the results at the end of a laparoscopic hysterectomy in a scientifically rigorous manner.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A branch arising from the internal iliac artery in females, that supplies blood to the uterus.

The use of embolizing agents to block the arterial blood supply to parts or all of the UTERUS. The procedures are done to control bleeding or to cause destruction of uterine tissues.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.

Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).
