An Update on Laparoscopic Hysterectomy and Pelvic Floor Reconstruction


Laparoscopic hysterectomy and pelvic floor reconstruction have recently undergone some degree of evolution. New instrumentation has appeared, such as the vaginal delineator, but overall most of the instruments used have remained basically unchanged. This is related mostly to the need of keeping costs down by limiting the use of disposable instrumentation. For pelvic reconstruction, the laparoscopic approach is now usually considered the optimal approach, as it allows the surgeon to visualize structures that the vaginal surgeon could in the past only palpate.
