Objectives: This study aimed to identify risk factors associated with perineal and vaginal lacerations related to vaginal removal during total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH). Materials and Methods: We retrospectively assessed 134 patients who underwent TLH, of whom 44 (32.8%) had vaginal lacerations. Results: Univariate analysis revealed that for patients with myomas and adenomyosis, gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist use and myomas with a transverse diameter of ≥5 cm were significant risk factors, while multiparity (vaginal delivery) was a protective factor for perineal and vaginal lacerations. Moreover, multivariate analysis indicated that multiparity was the only statistically significant protective factor. For cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, endometrial cancer, and endometrial hyperplasia, only a uterine transverse diameter of ≥5 cm was a significant risk factor for perineal or vaginal lacerations. Conclusion: For patients with large myomas, multiple vaginal delivery was a protective factor, and in patients with normal-sized uteri, a uterine transverse diameter of ≥5 cm was a risk factor for perineal or vaginal lacerations.
