Objectives  To model the determinants of serious operative and post‐operative complications of hysterectomy and their potential risk factors. 
The risk of ureteric injury associated with hysterectomy: a 10‐year retrospective cohort study
TLDR
To evaluate the rates of ureteric injury among women undergoing hysterectomy, a large number of patients are referred to hospital for treatment of vaginal or laparoscopic prolapse preoperatively. Expand
Mortality risk associated with surgical treatment of female genital fistula
To describe the mortality risk associated with surgical treatment of female genital fistula and the contributory and contextual factors.
Efficacy of laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy in the management of menorrhagia: 400 consecutive cases
TLDR
To assess the safety and patient satisfaction of laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (LSH) using a standardised surgical technique, a large number of patients were satisfied with the technique. Expand

Morbidity outcomes of 78 577 hysterectomies for benign reasons over 23 years
Objective  To investigate the association of the method of hysterectomy for benign reasons with morbidity outcomes in Western Australia after taking other demographic, social and health‐relatedExpand
A systematic review and meta‐analysis of the effect of prophylactic tranexamic acid treatment in major benign uterine surgery
The value of tranexamic acid (TA) treatment as bleeding prophylaxis in major uterine surgery is unclear.
Laparoscopic hysterectomy in large uteri: Experience from a tertiary care hospital in Bangladesh
The purpose of this study was to examine the safety and feasibility of laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy for uteri weighing more than 500 g as compared to uteri weighing less than 500 gExpand

TLDR
To set an international benchmark for monitoring morbidity after hysterectomy, a large number of patients from around the world will be surveyed for the first time in order to establish a baseline for this type of care. Expand
Surgery for menorrhagia within English regions: variation in rates of endometrial ablation and hysterectomy
TLDR
Variation in the use of surgery (endometrial ablation or hysterectomy) for the treatment of menorrhagia in England is examined to examine variation between English regions. Expand
Assessment of surgeon and hospital volume for robot‐assisted and laparoscopic benign hysterectomy in Sweden
TLDR
RATLH led to better perioperative outcome and higher patient satisfaction one year after surgery, and these outcome differences were slightly more pronounced in very low-volume surgeons but persisted across all surgeon volume groups. Expand

TLDR
The elevated rate of CHD among premenopausal women with simple hysterectomies could not be explained by differences in smoking or use of oestrogens, and the Danish findings reinforce the need to consider CHD as one of the potential consequences of ‘simple’ hystrectomy. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
