Abstract

Objective: To compare the intraoperative characteristics and postoperative results of mini laparoscopic and conventional laparoscopic surgeries performed for surgical sterilization.

Study Design: This retrospective study was conducted to compare the conventional and mini laparoscopic tubal ligation for surgical tubal sterilization. In total of 39 women, 22 in the conventional laparoscopy and 17 in the mini laparoscopic surgery group participated in the study. The main outcome measures were total operation time, amount of bleeding, intraoperative complications, skin scar formation with patient scale and observer scale and length of hospital stay.

Results: Demographical findings did not differ between the two groups. Similarly, rates of intraoperative complications, conversion to laparotomy, length of hospital stay, pre and postoperative hematocrit levels were not significantly different between the groups. Both patient and observer POSAS scores were better in mini laparoscopic surgery group.

Conclusion: Mini laparoscopic surgery seems a safe and feasible alternative to conventional laparoscopy for surgical tubal sterilization.
