Objective: The aim of this study is to compare the perioperative outcomes of first 30 Laparoscopic Hysterectomy operations (LH) with the subsequent ones in patients similar with basic demographic characteristics.
Methods: A total of 92 patients operated in Bucak State Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Düzce University Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology between January 2012 and October 2013 were included in this study. LH operations performed for the first time by the same surgeon in 30 patients were formed Group 1. The remaining 62 patients, operated after the first 30 patients were formed Group 2.
Results: No statistically significant difference was detected in terms of age, parity, and previous history of pelvic surgery between Group 1 and Group 2 (p =0.813, p = 0.706 and p = 0.410). There was not any statistically significant difference between Group 1 and Group 2 in terms of operation time (min.), delta hb (g/dl), hospitalization time (day), and complication rate (p = 0.197 and p = 0.085, p = 0.086 and p = 0.353).
Conclusion: As today LH is a promising method of operation with low complication rates and high patient satisfaction, it should be kept in mind that increased surgeon experience does not always assure good surgical outcome.
