Laparoscopic hysterectomy was associated with fewer readmissions compared with the abdominal route; vaginal robotic and abdominal approaches had similar readmissions.IntroductionHysterectomy is one of the most commonly performed gynecological procedures in the USA and may be accomplished using an abdominal, laparoscopic, vaginal or robot‐assisted approach. In addition to traditional concerns such as perioperative complications or recovery, another pertinent factor when contemplating the route of hysterectomy is the difference in postoperative readmission rate. Hospital readmissions are associated with increased healthcare costs and may reflect patient morbidity. As such, readmission rates have been used as a metric for healthcare quality . It has been estimated that the cost of hospital readmissions in the USA totals more than 12–17 billion US dollars annually, with approximately 12% of these readmissions being preventable .The overall risk of readmission for benign gynecological surgery seems low; the incidence of readmission after hysterectomy as described in prior studies varies from 1.1 to 6.7% . It is important to understand the causes of readmission after surgery in order to design effective interventions, particularly for high‐risk patients .
