Treatment: Surgery - Total Abdominal Hysterectomy
Treatment: Surgery - Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Active Comparator: 1 - Total Abdominal Hysterectomy

Experimental: 2 - Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy


Treatment: Surgery: Total Abdominal Hysterectomy
For patients with clinical stage I disease, removal of the uterus and both tubes and ovaries are considered current standard treatment in Australia.

Treatment: Surgery: Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
The technique of total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH), utilising the McCartney tube, has been developed by Anthony J. McCartney over the last 10 years. It allows the completion of the hysterectomy entirely laparoscopically, without the need for additional vaginal surgery.
