Aim: To study the indications and clinical profile of patients undergoing hysterectomy in Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS). Materials and methods: A chart review of 132 hysterectomy cases in JNIMS, from January 2016 to January 2017, was done. Peripartum hysterectomy was excluded. The data regarding age, parity, indications of hysterectomy, length of hospital stay (LOHS), and additional surgical procedures were collected and analyzed. Results: Age distribution ranged from 34 to 73 years. The most common age-group was 41 to 50 years (57 patients, 43.18%), and multiparas (>2 parity) had maximal rate (68 patients, 51.52%) of hysterectomies. The most common indication for hysterectomy was abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) (56 patients, 4242%). The abdominal route (75.76%) was more common than the vaginal route (23.48%) and minimal access surgery (MAS) (0.76%). Eighty-seven patients (65.91%) underwent bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The most noted frequency of hospital stay was 4 days (29 patients, 21.97%). Eleven appendectomies and one cholecystectomy were done as an additional surgical procedure. Conclusion: Nondescent vaginal hysterectomy (NDVH) is an established safe surgical procedure but such route is lesser used. The reason may be due to less exposure to such a procedure. Additional surgical procedure is an advantage in the abdominal route, but studies of the plausible risks that may be associated with such procedures are also lacking. The impact of preservation of the ovary is also a lesser-explored area. Hysterectomy seems to be the first option in treatment where resources are limited. It is time to review our approach to benign conditions before considering surgery as the first option. Clinical significance: Symptomatic relief is palpable by hysterectomy, but lack of studies involving the impact of hysterectomy, for example, psychological, social, economical, etc., is a cause of concern. More prospective data comparing indications of hysterectomy with its impact may be helpful in streamlining absolute indications, and patients may be benefitted from the adverse effects of surgical interventions.
