Numerous uterine manipulators have been developed by scientists across the world with an aim to make the operation of Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy a Safe and Effective procedure. With the passage of time the shortcomings of a manipulator were overcome by the next generation manipulator to improve the surgery and minimize the complications. The manipulators currently available are either single use disposable or reusable, whilst a third group of reposables (part reusable and part disposable) are also available.
