We have performed Classic Intrafascial Supracervical Hysterectomy (CISH) since April 1993, so we are to report the clinical results of CISH for 10 years, and introduce the technical aspects of new CISH. METHODS: A retrospective analysis on 470 cases of CISH (conventioal and new method) was carried out including age, parity, operating time, blood loss, uterine weight, pathologic results, complications and postoperative recovery. RESULTS: The mean age was 44.8 years (range 25-68), parity 2.23 (0-9), operating time 131 minutes (70-310), mean blood loss 148 mL (20-1000) and mean uterine weight was 306 gram (90-880). The most common uterine pathology was uterine leiomyoma (49.3%) and there were adenomyosis (15.5%), leiomyoma with adenomyosis (12.5%), chronic cervicitis (5%) and so on. Intraoperative complications included one case of bladder injury due to thick adhesion and 6 cases of bleeding requiring transfusion. Postoperative complications included 5 cases of cervical coring site bleeding, 2 cases of febrile complications, 2 cases of trocar site bleeding, 1 case of transient nerve injury of lower extremity, and 1 case of urinary tract infection. The mean hospital stay was 5.3 days (3-10). two hundreds and seventy eight patients of 470 had been followed for cervical pathology, and no pathologic findings except 3 cases of mild dysplasia were shown. CONCLUSION: Classic intrafascial supracervical hysterectomy, a minimally invasive organ-preserving procedure indicated for benign uterine disease, is associated with few operative complications and low morbidity, and the disadvantages of conventional Semm's CISH technique can be overcome by new CISH technique using triple ligation method.
