Abstract

Trachelectomy is a notoriously difficult laparoscopic procedure secondary to remaining scar tissue from the prior supracervical hysterectomy, as well as the necessity to clear vital organs including the bladder and the rectum out of the plane of dissection in order to remove the cervix. Many authors have suggested techniques involving ureteral stents to minimize the chance of ureteral injury. Our institute presents this two-port laparoscopic technique without the use of stents which we believe safely accomplishes the trachelectomy through very minimally invasive means.
