Vaginal hysterectomy is the preferred route of hysterectomy for benign disease. It is associated with a shorter recovery, fewer complications, less cost and better cosmetic results than other types of hysterectomy. The objective of this video is to make vaginal hysterectomy approachable by showing the key procedural steps. Courtesy of Karl Jallad. Used with permission.

The following footage demonstrates a technique to perform a salpingo-oophorectomy by natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES). A single port is placed in the vagina and after achieving pneumoperitoneum, an endoscope is introduced to survey the abdomen and pelvis. The salpingo-oophorectomy is then completed under direct visualization by using conventional laparoscopic instruments through the vaginal port. Video created by Karl Jallad. Used with permission.

This video is a step-by-step operative technique for educational purposes. The current pregnancy was complicated by severe preeclampsia, the medical team decided to perform a vaginal cesarean delivery for maternal salvage. The operative technique consists of 4 steps. Step 1 is the sagittal and vertical incision of the cervix then the bladder with the anterior vaginal wall pushed upwards. Step 2 is the exposing the lower uterine segment and making a vertical segment incision up to the highest part of the lower uterine segment. Step 3 is the extraction of the fetus and the step 4 is the reconstruction of the lower uterine segment by separate sutures.

Anterior colpotomy is one of the most difficult procedural steps to master during vaginal hysterectomy, and may be a major obstacle to more widespread use of the vaginal approach. Precise knowledge of surgical anatomy is essential for safe and proficient performance of this important step. The objectives of this video are to outline the anatomy of the vesicocervical space, demonstrate a dissection technique of anterior colpotomy, and present our results on the average distance from the cervico-vaginal junction to the anterior peritoneal reflection for vaginal hysterectomy.

The technique for minilaparoscopic single site hysterectomy is here shown. A uterine manipulator is placed transvaginally and two 3-mm trocars are inserted at the umbilical level. Standard steps for total laparoscopic hysterectomy are followed. The entire operation is accomplished using only reusable instruments and all the uterine vascular pedicles are coagulated using 3-mm bipolar coagulation. Colpotomy is performed using monopolar cautery and the specimen is extracted through the vagina. The cuff is sutured transvaginally. The operation is terminated leaving only a very small umbilical incision. See the related article by Uccella et al (July 2015 issue).

The specimen is placed into the glove within the abdomen. Glove opening and thumb are exteriorized through the umbilical and left lower incisions, respectively. The trocar and optic are inserted into the glove, which is then insufflated. The thumb tip is cut, and a power morcellator is inserted through this finger. The morcellation is accomplished within the glove. The thumb tip is closed, and the glove, containing residuals, is removed through the umbilical incision. Thus, the risks of bag piercing and leakage during contained power morcellation are eliminated. See the related article by Akdemir et al (May 2015 issue).

Declining vaginal hysterectomy numbers in Obstetrics and Gynecology training programs underscores the need to improve the teaching of vaginal surgical skills. Barriers to performing vaginal hysterectomy include technical difficulty, low caseload, lack of requisite skills, and lack of experience with need for more training. To enhance surgical education, we developed a proficiency-based vaginal hysterectomy suturing technical skills curriculum. The objective of this video is to illustrate the correct performance, proper surgical technique, and time and error evaluation for four important vaginal hysterectomy suturing tasks (Heaney pedicle stitch, simple pedicle stitch, double ligature, and continuous running stitch).

This animated video depicts the method of insertion and deployment of the vacuum-induced uterine tamponade device for the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage secondary to an atonic, distended uterus. The device is inserted into the uterus and the occlusion balloon is insufflated with saline to create a seal at the level of the external cervical opening. After securing the device to the patient's inner thigh, vacuum is applied, collapsing the uterus as the blood is evacuated. The device is removed after one hour.
