Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the type of hysterectomy that gynaecological surgeons and female hospital staff would choose for benign disease of the uterus, and to investigate the most influential factors in that choice. We performed a prospective survey of 369 gynaecological surgeons and 370 female staff members of a large teaching hospital. Our survey found that 88% of UK gynaecological oncologists and 50% of US gynaecological oncologists responding would perform a supracervical hysterectomy (SCH) over a total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) for benign disease of the uterus. A total of 72% of the female staff surveyed would choose a SCH for benign disease of the uterus. In conclusion, our study has given gynaecological and prospective patient approval to support the idea of replacing total hysterectomy with supracervical hysterectomy for benign disease of the uterus.
