Abstract

The article presents current view on vaginal hysterectomy. Arguments in favour of this miniinvasive, minimal access surgical technique are presented. In conclusion the authors underline that vaginal hysterectomy is a cheap, miniinvasive technique which doesn’t require expensive, sophisticated equipment and, what is the most important, which is relatively easy to learn. Due to these advantages, if hysterectomy is necessary, vaginal route should be considered as a technique of choice. While taking a decision which technique to choose, a surgeon should rather look for contraindications for vaginal hysterectomy than indications for this technique.
