Eleven hundred and five cases of vaginal hysterectomy are analysed and their complications discussed. More than 90% of the patients were between the ages of 31 to 60 years. The common indications for hysterectomy were prolapse (51%) and dysfunctional uterine bleeding (34.9%). In four cases abdominal approach was necessary to complete the operation. The overall incidence of major complications was 4% and the corrected mortality rate was 0.18%. The complications of vaginal hysterec­tomy by other authors are discussed.
