Objective: Hysterectomy is the second most common major surgical procedure, after cesarean section in all over the world. It has been reported that the rate of hysterectomy application is tightly associated with age and parity, and will apply nearly 20% at 55-year-old women. We aimed to evaluate hysterectomy cases in our clinic, carried out at last four years.
