Abstract

Post Hysterectomy Causes of bleeding include atrophic vaginitis, vaginal vault granulation, prolapsed fallopian tube, cervical stump cancer, infiltrating ovarian tumors, estrogen secreting tumors in other parts of the body and rarely carcinoma of the fallopian tube. Endometriosis of the vault sometimes can cause postmenopausal bleeding. Post Hysterectomy complications at the vault site such as a bleeding incident can be commonly observed at a short-term post-operative period. Other delayed complications often occur as a hematoma, granuloma, keloid, incision hernia and or vascular formation at the vault. Many of these complications may be accompanied with bleeding symptoms. This case report describes persistent bleeding from vaginal vault 18 months following Hysterectomy.
