Summary
Brief summary
The hypotheses of this study is that the use of the instrument “Harmonic Scalpel” (ultrasonic
shears) for vaginal hysterectomy instead of traditional sutures confers advantage over the
use of traditional clamps and sutures. The proposed benefits and outcome measures are reduced
blood loss, reduced operating time, reduced post-operative pain and earlier discharge from
hospital. Other outcome measure will include complications and cost.
