Laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with aortoileac and pelvic lymphadenectomy (operation according to Wertheim) with the resection of rectum

Laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with aortoileac and pelvic lymphadenectomy (operation according to Wertheim) with the resection of rectum.
Professor Puchkov K.V. is performing an operation (2017).

The patient was 48 years old, had retrocervical infiltrating endometriosis, invading to the uterine cervix, sacroiliac ligament on the left side, vaginal wall and rectum, with the development of moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of an endometrioid type with the focus of planocellular metaplasia of fornix of vagina, invading to the cervix and vaginal wall (in rectum the tumor had not been found out). In this video the technique of radical hysterectomy with aortoileac and pelvic lymphadenectomy with transsection of sacrouterine and cardinal ligaments near the pelvic wall and removal of the upper one-third of vagina is demonstrated. Hysterectomy was performed with the help of a 5 mm LigaSure («MEDTRONIC-COVIDIEN») instrument. When performing aortoileac and pelvic lymphadenectomy, the technique of removing of nodes simultaneously by a 5 mm ultrasonic dissector, called Harmonic Scalpel, produced by Ethicon Company, was demonstrated. The use of ultrasound gives a possibility “to weld” thin lymphatic ducts, it is a kind of prophylaxis to prevent development of lymphatic cysts. This technique of operation gives a possibility not to use the drainage system. Lymphatic nodes were placed in separate plastic bags and were removed from the abdominal cavity alongside with the uterus. The author had shown a safe technique of exposure of tumorous infiltrate and exposure of ureter until the area where it confluences into the urinary bladder by means of a 5 mm thin hook. The zone of rectum exposure was 2/3 of its circumference, then the edge resection of colon was performed with using of a 45 mm EndoGIA («MEDTRONIC COVIDIEN») intestinal reloads, leaving the affected area in the tumorous infiltrate. Vagina was exposed as low as possible in the caudal direction and was transected at the distance of 4 cm from the cervix within the limits of healthy tissues (1/3 of it was removed). In this video a special attention is paid to the restorative stage-stitching of vagina, that was done by the interrupted suture, using “Monocril” thread. The operation time was 2 hours 50 minutes.
