New research expands insights into most adequate treatment for uterine descent
When uterine descent requires surgery, various procedures exist. A randomized clinical trial of the two most common uterus-sparing procedures in 26 Dutch hospitals has now been published in JAMA. The results show that a hundred-year-old method shows better results after surgery than a more recently developed method. This is a relevant finding because both in the Netherlands and worldwide more women undergo the more recent method. There is also a group of patients who benefit more from the newer procedure.
