confused about hyst type

I am having a hyst/bso, sometime in the next month-doc is going to call me with date. Anyway- my doc said she is doing a lapscopic hyst, but removing the organs whole through the vagina, so is that a TLH, or a LAVH, not that it really matters too much, I guess I just feel weird not knowing what to call it.

Re: confused about hyst type


LAVH stands for "laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy" and so, if your procedure is laparoscopic and vaginal, then that is the abbreviation for your hysterectomy. (The full abbreviation will be LAVH/BSO).

You’ll find a list of abbreviations used on this site by clicking on the "Quick Links" tab, on the right of the purple bar towards the top of every page, or by clicking here.

Hope that helps!
