Summary

If a vaginal manipulator is used for abdominal hysterectomy, the vagina can be cut and separated from the cervix without cutting the Cardinal and Sacrouterine ligaments and protecting the top of the vaginal tissue (Portio vaginalis). In this way, both the shortening of the vagina and the prolapse of the vaginal cuff can be prevented. In addition, the duration of hysterectomy surgery is significantly shortened.

Description

In a classical abdominal hysterectomy, the Cardinal ligaments and the Sacrouterine ligaments are cut before the uterus leaves the vagina, and the vaginal cuff is cut deeper in the vagina over the cervix and separated from the vagina. During this procedure, the vaginal tissue in the Portio vaginalis comes out and causes a loss of vaginal length. If a vaginal manipulator is used for abdominal hysterectomy, the vagina can be cut and separated from the cervix without cutting the Cardinal and Sacrouterine ligaments and protecting the top of the vaginal tissue (Portio vaginalis). In this way, both the shortening of the vagina and the prolapse of the vaginal cuff can be prevented. In addition, the duration of hysterectomy surgery is significantly shortened.
