Table 3 Intraoperative and postoperative parameters

From: Twenty-first century laparoscopic hysterectomy: should we not leave the vaginal step out?

  LAVH (n = 37) TLH (n = 67) P value
Mean ±SD (range) Mean ±SD (range)
Blood loss (mL) 456.8 ±893.7 (100–5,650) 173.1 ±188.2 (0–1,200) <0.05
Length of surgery (min) 144.3 ±40.0 (90–255) 150.7 ±47.7 (60–320) N.S.
Uterus weight (g) 165.3 ±120.7 (40–560) 207.2 ±120.7 (50–620) N.S.
Length of patient stay (days) 6.1 ±2.1 (3–12) 4.4 ±2.1 (2–12) <0.05
  1. The LAVH group shows a significantly higher blood loss, with comparable length of surgery and uterus weight
