Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue entitled “Effects of Abdominal Hysterectomy on Gynecological Patients: 2nd Edition”. This is our new volume; we published eight papers in the first volume. For more details, please visit


Hysterectomies are among the most frequently performed surgical procedures worldwide. A hysterectomy can be performed for benign disease, oncology, or hemodynamic instability in emergency cases of metrorrhagia. Over the years, several concerns have arisen about patients’ quality of life, pelvic stability, and vascular, ureteral, and bowel complications after hysterectomy. However, a hysterectomy remains a necessary treatment in cases of gynecological oncological pathology or a life-saving treatment in emergency cases.

In this Special Issue, we aim to review the role of hysterectomies in various gynecological diseases. Furthermore, different laparotomic, laparoscopic, and robotic surgical approaches will be reviewed, and the latest technologies for performing a hysterectomy will be investigated.

We are inviting submissions of original articles, reviews, systematic reviews, case reports, and meta-analyses for this Special Issue.

Dr. Stefano Cianci
Guest Editor
