Aim: to study the incidence and indication for hysterectomy in the study population.
Materials and Methods: A Retrospective study was conducted in Department of Pathology, over the period from June 2015-May 2017. Hysterectomy specimen with or without unilateral or bilateral adnexa received in the department. The specimens were analyzed in detail macroscopically for various parameters like size, external surface, and consistency and cut sections.
Results: Out of total 10230 histopathological specimens received at department of Pathology from June 2015 to May 2017, hysterectomy specimens were 609 accounting for of total specimen received. Hysterectomy specimens were received from a wide range of age groups varying from 15 years to 81 years. The average age for undergoing hysterectomy was 43.05 years. Majority of cases (44.01%) were from the 5th decade followed by 4th decade (36.95%). Among the 609 cases, the major clinical diagnosis for which hysterectomy was performed included DUB (32.35%), Fibroid (29.39%) and Prolapse (16.09%). 6 Hysterectomies were performed for malignant lesions (Carcinoma of cervix, Endometrial carcinoma and Ovarian malignancy) and 24 Obstetrics Hysterectomies were done.
Conclusion: Maximum numbers of patients were from the 5th decade followed by 4th decade. DUB, Fibroid and Uterine Prolapse were the major clinical diagnosis before Hysterectomy was done.
