In 85% of cases molar pregnancy and accidents following D and C were the principle indications in early months. 1 out of 74 caesareans had hysterectomy. There were 21 deaths out of 67 hysterectomies done for rupture uterus, and 6 deaths out of 33 hysterectomies for other causes. Morbidity included 18 wound infections, 5 peritonitis, 9 burst abdomens. Consecutive 100 hysterectomies out of 19688 total confinements give an incidence rate of 1/198.
