Methods: Retrospective study including patients with hysterectomy with benign pathology and obstetric causes, excluding those with malignant pathology. The indications, patients characteristics and complications were recorded. Descriptive and bivariate statistics were used. Results: The incidence of urinary tract injury was 5.7% (n = 30) with vesical injury of 4.17%.
