Laparoscopic Subtotal Hysterectomy

Securing the Right Uterine Vessels

The right uterine vascular pedicle is cauterized with Kleppinger forceps.

An Endoloop is positioned next to the vascular pedicle and an atraumatic grasper secures the vessels, through the loop.

The Kleppinger forceps extend the area of cauterization and bipolar scissors divide the pedicle.

With the uterine vessels identified, they are brought through the Endoloop and the ligature snugged down.
