With mounting evidence of the beneficial effects of the retained cervix, supracervical hysterectomy is gaining popularity worldwide, In this series of 123 patients, obesity and pelvic adhesions were the chief factors that prevented amputation of the cervix at the time of hysterectomy, We propose that these are cogent indications for planned supracervical adbominal hysterectomy in order to minimize damage to the adjacent viscera, This option is best justified by a risk/benefit analysis.
