The case of vaginal hysterectomy
Approximately 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the US, making it one of the most frequently performed surgical procedure.
The most common indications for hysterectomy (some indications are overlapping) are symptomatic uterine leiomyomas (51.4%), abnormal uterine bleeding (41.7%), endometriosis (30%) and prolapse (18.2%).¹
Vaginal minimally invasive approaches to hysterectomy should be performed, whenever feasible, over abdominal and laparoscopic hysterectomy.

However, vaginal approach is routinely conducted in only 15% of the patient population, due to anatomical barriers and accessibility challenges.
