Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy

Overview | MIVH | LAVH | TVH | TAH | Radical Hysterectomy | LH | LSH | HALS

Several small incisions are necessary along with CO 2 gas that is pumped into the abdomen to displace to organs so "periscopes" with camera lens are put through the incisions to allow the surgery to be performed via TV screens. These types of hysterectomies have the advantage of seeing the upper abdomen and also allow surgeons to visualize above the uterus if they feel uncomfortable with strictly doing vaginal surgery.
