|Vault Prolapse, Vaginal||Procedure: VTH via the Tsuzi method with residual uterine ligament ligation|
Objective: To evaluate the post-hysterectomy vault prolapse (PHVP) rates performed using different methods of vaginal total hysterectomy (VTH).
Methods: A computer search identified a total of 251 women who underwent VTH with/without concomitant surgeries between January 1986 and December 2001 in a single center. Thirty-eight women were excluded due to not only a vaginal approach. Of the remaining 213 women, 129 and 84 underwent VTH via the Tsuzi method with residual uterine ligament ligation (ligations group) and traditional VTH (without ligations group), respectively. The χ2 and Mann-Whitney U tests were applied to compare the data. The cumulative percentages of women without PHVP were calculated over time and compared using Kaplan-Meier curves and log-rank tests. A p value of less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
