Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare complications from vaginal hysterectomy with abdominal hysterectomy in renal transplant recipients. Study Design: Women who underwent renal transplantation then hysterectomy from 1966-2008 at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, were identified. Data were collected about preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative events. Main outcome measure was loss of allograft function; secondary outcomes included types of complications and treatment methods. Results: Of 58 women with renal transplants, 42 women (72.4%) underwent abdominal hysterectomy. The most common indication for hysterectomy was menorrhagia (n = 20; 34.5%). Overall, 24 women (41.4%) had complications, the most common of which were infection (n = 15) and transfusion (n = 8). Women who underwent abdominal hysterectomy were no more likely to have perioperative complications than were women who underwent vaginal hysterectomy (odds ratio, 1.25; 95% confidence interval, 0.38-4.08). Conclusion: Although patients with renal transplants had perioperative complications, none of these complications led to renal graft loss. Hysterectomy can be considered in these patients when accompanied by diligent postoperative care.
