, Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus which removes all or part of the uterus. Researchers from Duke University reveals a young woman who underwent hysterectomy procedures doubled risk of premature menopause.
Hysterectomy is a common treatment for various diseases , such as tumors of the uterus and excessive bleeding . Most patients are very satisfied with the results of hysterectomy.
“But there are potential risks of surgery should be considered along with benefits,” said the researcher, Patricia G. Moorman, PhD, MSPH, professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at Duke University, as quoted from esciencenews.com, on Wednesday (11/16/2011).
A total of 600,000 women in the United States have a hysterectomy every year, but long-term impact of this procedure has not been well documented.
The Duke team analyzed nearly 900 women aged 30 to 47 years in two hospitals, Duke University Hospital and Home Durham Regional Hospital. Researchers gave blood tests and questionnaires to the participants for five years.
Perempua A total of 465 people of whom are healthy women who did not undergo surgery, while 406 other women have had a hysterectomy to remove at least one ovary.
Maintaining the ovary (ovarian) while still allowing women a hysterectomy still produce sex hormones. But doctors have long known that early menopause may increase the risk of osteoporosis, the disease heart and other diseases.
While retaining the ovaries, the Duke team found that 14.8 percent of menopausal women in this study had a hysterectomy, compared with 8 percent of women who had never undergone surgery.
most high-risk postmenopausal women found that one ovaries removed along with her womb. But this risk remains higher in women who both ovaries are still maintained.
The researchers estimated the menopause occurs about two years earlier in women who underwent hysterectomy. Unfortunately, it is still not known what triggers the ovaries cease to function after a hysterectomy.
“The hypothesis, operations disrupt blood flow to the ovary thereby triggering early ovarian failure. There are other experts who speculate the cause is not operating, but the condition the underlying before the operation that caused it. Until now, these questions unanswered, “said Moorman.
Moorman hopes his team’s findings could be a consideration for women who will undergo a hysterectomy to explore other treatment options for disease given the possibility of early menopause.

When in fact we did not lose, for example Eka Hospital now has the cooperation with the Mayo Clinic, U.S., then we can be aligned with the U.S., “explains Dr. Esther Nurima, MARS, Director of Corporate Eka Hospital, in a media gathering ‘Hand in Hand for Healthier’ at Eka Hospital, , Tuesday (11/15/2011).
As of July 2011, for the first time the Mayo Clinic are here to serve patients in Indonesia. The experts of the largest private hospitals in the United States this does not come directly, but will serve from a distance with technology Electronic Medical Consult (e-MC).
Consultation distance is not limited to correspondence course, but with a video teleconference technology of patients in Indonesia can meet directly (real time) with the experts at the Mayo Clinic. The patient’s medical data can also be accessed simultaneously by both parties. E-MC has been able to complete the development Center of Excellence to disease cardiovascular.
“The presence of E-MC brings many benefits to patients include access to more than 3,000 specialists in Eka Hospital and the Mayo Clinic, a comprehensive medical solutions, team collaboration expert doctors at Eka Hospital and the Mayo Clinic, as well as efficiency of time, effort, cost to get a second opinion without having to leave Indonesia, “explains Dr. Esther .
During 6 months of cooperation, there are approximately 2 to 3 patients per month who already use e-MC services, among others, for the cases of the disease cardiac and neurosurgery.
