Declining vaginal hysterectomy numbers in Obstetrics and Gynecology training programs highlights the need for innovative methods to teach vaginal surgical skills. Unfortunately, simple inexpensive vaginal hysterectomy models are difficult to construct due to complex pelvic anatomy and the unique vaginal surgical field. The objective of this video is to demonstrate construction of a low-cost, low-fidelity vaginal hysterectomy suturing skills bench model to simulate the Heaney pedicle stitch, simple pedicle stitch, double ligature, and continuous running stitch.
