Aim and objective: The aim of this study was to compare the two types of hysterectomy—abdominal and non-descent vaginal. Materials and methods: A randomized prospective trial was conducted which included 400 patients. Two hundred in abdominal hysterectomy (group I) and 200 in non-descent vaginal (group II). The two groups were compared for the various intraoperative and postoperative parameters and data were analyzed. Results: Vaginal hysterectomy had a definite advantage in the postoperative period in terms of shorter hospital stay and early mobility of the patient. The postoperative pain was also less with a statistically significant difference (p value 0.0006). Moreover, there were no wound infections in the group II. Conclusion: Vaginal hysterectomy should be the preferred route of hysterectomy whenever feasible. The surgery is performed through the vagina and has greater patient satisfaction in the postoperative period.
