Course Description

This case provides a live surgical demonstration of a laparoscopic uterine harvest. An advantage of laparoscopy is that the magnification aids in ligation of all branches of the uterine artery resulting in reduced bleeding after reperfusion in the patient. Techniques for using one uterine artery, a single ovarian vein, achieving longer pedicle lengths and suturing of the cervicovesical and Denonvilliers fascia will be discussed and demonstrated.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Demonstrate a laparoscopic uterine harvest.
