Khaled Alhomsi* and Mhd. Nezar Alsharif

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study aimed to focus on the prevalence of hysterectomy, the type of it, indications and the most common age of the women doing this procedure. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study composed of 249 women who visited different clinics in Damascus, Syria and had a hysterectomy. Results: We had 249 women who had a hysterectomy. 45% of all women were between 40-59 years old which was the most common. Abnormal Uterine Bleeding was the most common cause for hysterectomy in 36.5% of all women, followed by uterine fibroids in in 23.7% and uterine prolapse in 20%. Ovarian cancer was the least common cause in only 0.4%. We found that the most common type of hysterectomy was abdominal. Conclusion: The trend of hysterectomy is on a rise nowadays and is a considerable issue if done with no proper indication as it is a major surgery with many complications.

Keywords: Hysterectomy, Syrian Women.
