Abstract

This case report describes a total laparoscopic hysterectomy of a large uterus of a woman who recently underwent neurosurgery for a grade IV glioblastoma. Because of a severe anaemia due to chronic vaginal haemorrhage for a fibromatosis uterus, she was not able to start a chemotherapic oncological protocol. We thus decided to perform a total hysterectomy through a laparoscopic approach in order to reduce the hospital stay and to ensure a quick recovery. We studied a surgical but also anaesthesiological strategy in order to obtain a good result with no or as few as possible complications.
