Indications for surgery included dysfunctional uterine bleeding, endometrial hyperplasia, pelvic pain, post-menopausal bleeding, prophylactic surgery in BRCA positive patients and one grade 1 stage 1 endometrial cancer in whom laparoscopic hysterectomy was technically difficult and complicated by previous midline laparotomy. Ages ranged from 35-75 and BMI from 20-53.Mean operation time was 68.5 minutes and mean blood loss intraoperatively was 269mls. 15.2% (n = 5) had a blood loss equal or more than 500&thi...
