Is routine uterosacral ligament suspension an appropriate clinical adjunct at the time of hysterectomy?
The answers to these questions will facilitate the treatment of many American women. With the results of this study, the investigators would anticipate a reduction in the number of surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse. In addition, if uterosacral ligament suspension was shown to be ineffective, it would not be used routinely in the setting of hysterectomy and women will be spared the additional procedure and possibility of side effects or complications.
The relative risks and benefits of adding a prophylactic uterosacral ligament suspension at the time of hysterectomy in women without symptomatic prolapse symptoms have never been studied prospectively.
