  Purpose

Recently, many gynecologic oncologists proposed that surgeons should consider opportunistic salpingectomy to prevent ovarian cancer for all patients undergoing hysterectomy for benign disease. However, the safety and the consequences regarding ovarian function after salpingectomy have not yet to be established. Therefore, the aim of this randomized controlled study is compare the ovarian reserve via anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) between laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH) alone and LH combined with salpingectomy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in ovarian reserve [ Time Frame: 3 months after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary outcome measure was the change of ovarian reserve, determined by the rate of decline in AMH level from before surgery to 3-month post-surgery with the following formula : decline rate (%) = 100 × (preoperative AMH level - postoperative AMH level) ÷ preoperative AMH level.


Estimated Enrollment: 68
Study Start Date: June 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
