In this presentation, a new classification for total hysterectomy is shown taking into account the curative effect of surgery and adverse effects, such as bladder dysfunction. The classification is based only on the lateral extent of resection. Four types of radical hysterectomy are described, adding when necessary a few subtypes that consider nerve preservation and paracervical lymphadenectomy. Lymph node dissection is considered separately: four levels are defined according to corresponding arterial anatomy and radicality of the procedure.
