The surgeon is expected to perform a total laparoscopic hysterectomy of own choosing.
The procedure will be evaluated by 2 international expert reviewers on 4 steps of the hysterectomy: Dissection of the broad ligament and the IP ligament, Bladder Dissection, Colpotomy, Laparoscopic vaginal suture.
For these 4 steps, a specific evaluation scale is used by the reviewers: the H-OSATS scale (Knight S et Al. PLoS One. 2018. 2;13(1): e0190580.)
For recommendations on the technical aspects of a laparoscopic hysterectomy, please consult with attention the article Surgical steps of total laparoscopic hysterectomy
