Vaginal cuff dehiscence following controlled ovarian stimulation recognized during egg retrieval

Vaginal cuff dehiscence is a rare complication of hysterectomy. Those who choose to undergo controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) and oocyte cryopreservation following hysterectomy must be aware that elevated abdominal pressure from stimulation as well as transvaginal ultrasound use during monitoring may increase the risk of cuff dehiscence.
