One of the first successful vaginal hysterectomies was self-performed in the early 17th century. A 46-year-old peasant named Faith Haworth was carrying a heavy load when her uterus prolapsed completely. Frustrated by this frequent occurrence, she grabbed her uterus, pulled as hard as possible, and cut the whole lot of it with a short knife. The bleeding soon stopped and she lived on for many years, with a persistent vesico-vaginal fistula. This case was well documented and reported in 1670 by a male midwife Percival Willoughby ‘
Methodology: Totally 30 Consecutive Patients who give consent for LAVH and 30 consecutive patients who gave consent for TAH was taken up for the study.All women undergoing hysterectomy meeting the inclusion criteria will be divided into 2 groups- LAVH group and TAH group.
