Resident experiences with and post-training plans for cystoscopy at the time of hysterectomy.
AIMS: To determine OB/GYN residents' experience with and opinions toward cystoscopy at the time of hysterectomy.
STUDY DESIGN: An internet survey of OB/GYN residents assessed utilization of cystoscopy at the time of hysterectomy, familiarity with literature regarding universal versus selective cystoscopy, and plans post residency.
RESULTS: Cystoscopy was performed universally in the minority of cases of vaginal hysterectomy (12%), laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (14%), supracervical hysterectomy (0%), total abdominal hysterectomy (2%), laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (9%), total laparoscopic hysterectomy (27%), and hysterectomy with adnexa removal (5%). Residents planned universal cystoscopy post-training more frequently for all hysterectomy types.
CONCLUSION: Cystoscopy at the time of hysterectomy was performed universally in the minority for all hysterectomy categories. For all hysterectomy types, residents planned post-graduation to utilize universal cystoscopy at the time of hysterectomy more often than occurred in training.
