BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate patient satisfaction after laparoscopic supracervical (LASH) or total hysterectomy (TLH). METHODS: Retrospective study of patient satisfaction after LASH or TLH. RESULTS: We studied 40 cases of LASH and another 40 of TLH. The age of the patients, marital status, education level and employment status between the two groups were comparable. Both LASH and TLH results in improvement of general health and symptoms. However, there was no significant difference in patient satisfaction with surgery, in general health, body and self-images, and sexual satisfaction between the LASH and TLH group. Before surgery, patients in the TLH group experienced more pain with a sexual relationship than those in the LASH group. The difference became non-significant after surgery. There was no difference in urinary or gastrointestinal symptoms after either type of hysterectomy. CONCLUSIONS: Both LASH and TLH result in improvement of general health and symptoms. Body and self-images, sexual function, gastrointestinal and urinary functions after LASH or TLH are comparable.
