Vaginal cuff closure performed in a vertical manner.
Procedure: Vaginal cuff closure - vertical
Vaginal cuff is closed vertically.
Active Comparator: Horizontal
Vaginal cuff closure performed in a horizontal manner.
Procedure: Vaginal cuff closure - horizontal
Vaginal cuff is closed horizontally.
- Vaginal length [ Time Frame: 1-3 weeks postop ]Vaginal length will be measured in cm by standard POP-Q measurements
- Vaginal length [ Time Frame: 3-4 months postop ]Vaginal length will be measured in cm by standard POP-Q measurements
- Cuff closure time [ Time Frame: intra-op ]Time will be recorded by the circulating nurse in seconds
- Complications [ Time Frame: Up to 4 months post-op ]Including urinary retention, bladder injury, ureteral injury, cuff dehiscence, cuff bleeding requiring further procedures or cauterization
