Methods of Vaginal Cuff Closure During Vaginal Hysterectomy

Authors: STEPHEN H. CRUIKSHANK MD

Abstract

ABSTRACT: Over a 2.8-year period, I did 112 vaginal hysterectomies using five different techniques of cuff closure to examine the preservation of vaginal length associated with each closure. I conclude that all five methods are acceptable as long as there is proper vault support. Morbidity was minimal, vaginal depth was retained, and there were no deaths.
