ABSTRACT O prolapso de tuba uterina é complicação rara após histerectomia, com aproximadamente 80 casos descritos na literatura. A sintomatologia é inespecífica, podendo incluir sangramento genital, dispareunia e dor pélvica crônica. O diagnóstico diferencial deve ser feito com granuloma de cúpula vaginal e carcinoma de vagina. O tratamento deve ser individualizado, podendo ser realizado por via vaginal, abdominal ou laparoscópica. Relatamos o caso de uma paciente, 47 anos, com miomatose uterina, submetida a histerectomia vaginal, evoluindo com prolapso de tuba uterina após 11 meses de pós-operatório. O exame especular evidenciava lesão vegetante, friável e sangrante localizada na cúpula vaginal. Esses achados clínicos sugeriam o diagnóstico de prolapso de tuba uterina. A paciente foi submetida a nova intervenção cirúrgica, com ressecção da tuba uterina por via vaginal. O exame natomopatológico confirmou o diagnóstico e a paciente evoluiu com remissão completa da sintomatologia.

    ABSTRACT: A postmenopausal patient with vaginal prolapse of the fallopian tube presented with an erroneous diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the vaginal apex. Failure to consider fallopian tube prolapse in the differential diagnosis of vaginal adenocarcinoma led to an upper vaginectomy and subsequent complication of a ureterovaginal fistula. The differential diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the vagina in the postmenopausal patient and the management of vaginal prolapse of the fallopian tube are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Although hysterectomy was the most frequently performed major surgical procedure among women of reproductive age during the past decade, few recent studies have been conducted to determine the risk of complications. We examined data from the Collaborative Review of Sterilization, a prospective, multicenter, observational study coordinated by the Centers for Disease Control, to assess the comparative risks of complications among women undergoing hysterectomy by the abdominal and vaginal approaches. Between September, 1978, and August, 1981, 1,851 women from nine institutions were included in the study. Women who underwent vaginal hysterectomy experienced significantly fewer complications than women who had undergone abdominal hysterectomy. The difference was probably attributable to the prevalence and efficacy of prophylactic antibiotic use among the former group. Vaginal hysterectomy was associated with more unintended major surgical procedures but less febrile morbidity, bleeding requiring transfusion, hospitalization, and convalescence than abdominal hysterectomy. Vaginal hysterectomy with prophylactic antibiotics should be strongly considered for those women of reproductive age for whom either surgical approach is clinically appropriate.
