Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hysterectomy is the second most common surgical procedure for women after cesarean section, and it may be recommended for different conditions, such as uterine fibroids, gynecologic cancers, uterine prolapse, adenomyosis/endometriosis and other causes of bleeding or chronic pelvic pain.

In the recent years, new research developments and technologies have allowed surgeons to improve surgical techniques for hysterectomy in both the traditional vaginal approach and minimally invasive techniques such as V-NOTES, laparoscopic and/or robotic-assisted surgery, which entail smaller incisions, less pain and a quicker recovery.

This Special Issue aims to focus our attention on the role of hysterectomy in different gynecological diseases in the context of precision medicine and the latest advances in this type of intervention.
