This case demonstrates the use of the Ligasure Maryland™ Jaw instrument in performing a total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for uterine fibroids. The purpose of this didactic video is to explain the "step by step" technique of this very common gynecological procedure, namely a hysterectomy. We also underline that this new multifunctional instrument is very efficient and versatile. It may offer better precision and more safety (less thermal damage) to surgeons.
