Vaginal Morcellation: Tips to get to the REAL Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy
- Be introduced to the instrumentation that can improve exposure to the uterine pedicles difficult to see in large vaginal hysterectomies.
- Adapt abdominal and laparoscopic techniques you already know to decrease uterine volume and allow completion of even the largest hysterectomies.
- Instruct your assistants to stand, retract, light and use suction to optimize visualization and performance during vaginal hysterectomy.
- Utilizing effective positioning, bed angle, seated position and assistants can be more ergonomic and help prolong the longevity of a vaginal surgeon's career.
