Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH)
Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) and laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) are minimally invasive surgical procedures deploying laparoscopic techniques to remove the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes, and occasionally the ovaries, through the vagina. The advantages over open hysterectomy are quicker patient recovery time and discharge from hospital, and a negligible level of residual abdominal scarring. Patients routinely undergo TLH procedures for both oncological and benign reasons.
Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH)
A laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy is a minimally invasive procedure in which a woman’s uterus, but not the cervix, is removed using a technique that involves several small abdominal incisions.
This is indicated to treat diseases of the uterus such as fibroids, endometriosis, infection in the ovaries or fallopian tubes, pelvic pain, and abnormal vaginal bleeding. Prior to the development of minimally invasive surgical techniques, treatment for such conditions often involved a total abdominal hysterectomy, which required a large abdominal incision and 6-8 weeks of recovery.
Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH)
Laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) is a surgical procedure that uses a laparoscope to guide the removal of the uterus and/or Fallopian tubes and ovaries through the vagina (birth canal). A different procedure, called a laparoscopic hysterectomy, is wholly performed using a laparoscope and other instruments inserted through tiny abdominal incisions, and the uterus, Fallopian tubes etc. are removed in minimal portions.
This is a surgical technique that can remove fibroids that are large, numerous or deeply embedded in the uterus, then an abdominal myomectomy may be necessary. Also, sometimes during the procedure and it is necessary to switch from a laparoscopic myomectomy to an abdominal myomectomy.
Hysteroscopic myomectomy is a procedure used to remove abnormal uterine tissue called fibroids. It involves two steps: First the uterus is viewed and the location of the uterine fibroids is identified using a hysteroscope, a type of telescope especially designed to view the inside of the uterus. Then the uterine fibroids are removed through channels in the scope. Sometimes it may take more than one procedure to remove all of the fibroid tissue.
No incisions are required for this procedure, which does not require a hospital stay. Average operative times range from 30 to 60 minutes. Patients are under local anesthesia plus intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Patients may be given a prescription for misoprostol, a medicine that when placed in the vagina results in cervical softening, which aids your doctor in dilating the cervix.
Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy
A Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy is a surgical procedure used for the removal of cysts in the ovary. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that ends with a few small incisions in the lower abdomen.
It is a surgical procedure which is performed to remove an ovarian cyst by preserving the ovary and fertility. The procedure is done to preserve the ovaries and fertility.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your uterus in order to diagnose and treat causes of abnormal bleeding. Hysteroscopy is done using a hysteroscope, a thin, lighted tube that is inserted into the vagina to examine the cervix and inside of the uterus. An operative hysteroscopy can be used to remove polyps, fibroids and adhesions.
