Laparoscopic Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy (LAVH)
LAVH is the laparoscopic detachment of the upper structures and ligaments to enable the surgeon to detach the uterus and/or tubes and ovaries and remove them vaginally.

TLH is the laparoscopic removal of the uterus and cervix and closure of the vagina laparoscopically.
Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy (LSH)
LSH is the removal of the body of the uterus using the laparoscope. The cervix is left intact. This is commonly done in combination with a sacrocolpopexy procedure.
Robotic Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
