Hysterectomy

TLH versus LSH: what does the evidence say?

Hysterectomy is the most common surgical procedure performed in gynaecology and, in over 95% of cases, does not necessarily require the removal of the uterine cervix to be completed successfully. In clinical practice, however, fewer than 10% of gynaecologists offer patients the possibility to express a personal preference concerning the choice between total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) and laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (LSH).
