Vaginal cuff dehiscence, or opening, is a rare, but serious complication that can occur following a complete hysterectomy. When your vaginal cuff tears, for whatever reason, it can be a frightening and traumatic event.
The vaginal cuff is created when the vaginal incision is closed after the complete uterus is removed. Until that area heals completely, the incision could open or tear. When the vaginal cuff tears, you can experience abdominal pain, pelvic pain, pressure, vaginal bleeding, and/or a watery discharge which requires immediate medical attention.
