This medical animation shows a laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy. Three port locations are shown, followed by inflation of the abdomen with carbon dioxide gas through the umbilical port. The laparoscope is inserted into the umbilical port, and additional instruments are inserted into the other ports. A laparoscopic view of the pelvic interior is shown, including the uterus and surrounding tissues. The urinary bladder is pulled away from the uterus, revealing the upper portion of the attached vagina. The fallopian tubes, various uterine ligaments, and upper vagina are cut away from the uterus. The uterus is pulled out of the body through the vagina. The vaginal incision is closed, the abdomen is deflated, the instruments are removed, and the ports are closed with sutures.
