Background: The aim of this paper is to review and compare the results obtained using the
Pfannenstiel, laparoscopy and minilaparotomy approaches for total hysterectomy procedure in
relation to benign uterine diseases.
Methods: A retrospective data analysis was performed on 165 patients who underwent
hysterectomy for benign uterine diseases at our centre during the period 2004 to 2006.
Findings: The minilaparotomy procedure was the fastest procedure with a mean time of 73.4
minutes (range: 67.85 to 78.94 minutes, p < 0.001). Hospital stay was shortest for laparosopic
procedure (mean time: 3.24 days, range: 2.86 to 3.61 days) (p < 0.001). The rate of intraoperative
and postoperative complications were not statistical different among three procedures.
Conclusion: The minilaparotomy procedure offers a minimally invasive option for total
hysterectomy due to benign uterine disease.
