Abstract

Patients who underwent laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy with or without adnexectomy experienced less fever, required less postoperative analgesia, were able to tolerate a full diet within 24 hours of surgery, and had a faster recovery and shorter hospital stay than patients who had abdominal or traditional vaginal hysterectomy.
