Approaches to isolating the uterine artery at its origin from the internal iliac artery

Author and Disclosure Information

Brought to you by the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons. Ligating the uterine artery at its origin can be performed safely and efficiently, provides hemostasis, and reduces potential injury to the ureter and bladder. In this video, the surgeons review relevant anatomy and demonstrate how the superior, medial, and inferior approaches require the identification of key anatomic structures. They then provide surgical techniques for skeletonizing the uterine artery from each approach.
