This stock medical exhibit features illustrations depicting a cesarean delivery that resulted in a hysterectomy. The first image provides an anterior view of a pregnant female figure and highlights the incision made to expose the uterus for delivery. The second illustration then shows an inset of the delivery from a side cut-away view. The third illustration depicts the removal of the postpartum uterus due to a growing hematoma. The fourth illustration displays the vaginal cuff as it is closed with running sutures. An inset is included to highlight the extreme proximity of the vaginal cuff to the ureters as they enter the bladder. The final image provides a side cut-away view of the post-operative anatomy. The labeled structures include the left ureter, the bladder, the urethra, the vaginal cuff and the ureter entering at the trigone. This image again emphasizes the extreme proximity of the vaginal cuff to the ureters as they enter the bladder. An orientation figure is included to provide the location of these structures within the body.
