We present the case of a 34-year-old woman with severe pelvic pain. Antecedents include one cesarean section and three previous laparoscopic surgeries for endometriosis. Clinical examination and MRI were both normal. In this video, we demonstrate how new technologies can also be used to perform a total laparoscopic hysterectomy in a safe and simple way. Although new surgical instruments help simplifying the procedure, one should not forget the importance of classical dissection rules.
