  • Abstract: Objective This study was designed to evaluate the safety and feasibility of prophylactic adnexectomy during vaginal hysterectomy for benign pathology. Methods We retrospectively reviewed medical records of all patients who underwent vaginal hysterectomy (VH) between 2008 and 2010. Clinical comparison of patients who underwent VH with adnexectomy (n = 92) and VH only (n = 686) was performed. Clinical characteristics (age, parity, body mass index, and previous pelvic surgery), surgical outcomes (uterine weight, operative time, estimated blood loss, pelvic adhesion, hemoglobin change and hospital stay) and intra- and postoperative complications (transfusion, bladder injury and fever) were evaluated. Results Clinical characteristics except for age (45.44 years for VH only vs. 47.15 years for VH with adnexectomy, P = 0.007) were not different between the two groups. Similarly, surgical outcomes and complication rates were not different between the two groups. Conclusion Prophylactic bilateral adnexectomy can be performed safely during VH.
