The CISH technique (Classic Intrafascial Supracervical Hysterectomy)
June 23, 2011
The first carefully described abdominal supracervical hysterectomy was performed by Wilhelm Alexander Freund in 1878 and it was the leading technique for over 80 years. Tervilä described the danger of cervical cancer to be 0.3-1.9% following supracervical hysterectomy. Since 1950, hysterectomy has been performed almost exclusively as total hysterectomy, though since the 1990 interest in supracervical hysterectomy has been reawakened thanks to the introduction of Classic Intrafascial Supracervical Hysterectomy CISH) pelviscopic and laparotomy techniques .
