Objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate the applicability and feasibility of Colpotomizer-assisted total abdominal hysterectomy (CATAH), a new technique for uterine removal in benign uterine pathologies. Materials and Methods: This study is a prospective cohort study conducted at a tertiary University hospital in Egypt. Eligible patients (n = 88) for total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) were divided into two groups; the study group who underwent TAH by the CATAH technique and the control group who underwent TAH by the conventional technique. Demographic data, operative time, blood loss, and operative complications were recorded. Results: The mean operative time was significantly reduced (64.47 ± 3.60 min) in the study group than in the control group (86.42 ± 5.54 min, P < 0.001). The mean time for cervical removal was significantly less (8.60 ± 1.39 min) in the study group than (17.77 ± 2.62 min) in the control group (P < 0.001). The mean volume of blood loss was less (197.38 ± 39.42 ml) in the study group than in the control group (462.69 ± 167.96 ml). Complications were fewer in the study group than in the control group. Conclusion: The CATAH technique was feasible, quicker with less intraoperative and postoperative complications than the conventional technique for TAH in benign uterine pathologies.
