Objective: The purpose of our study is to determine epidemiological factors for women with prolapse who underwent vaginal hysterectomy and to study the various complications of vaginal hysterectomy. Methods: This is a prospective, observational study performed at MNR medical college from January 2012 to December 2013. We included all patients who came to outpatient department with III degree pelvic organ prolapse. Women who underwent vaginal hysterectomy for causes other than POP were excluded. Results: 63.3% women were more than 50 years of age. Majority (71.6%) women were grandmultipara. Anaemia and hypertension were the common associated risk factors. Complications of vaginal hysterectomy in our study were, febrile morbidity (19.7%), vault hematoma (14.4%), vault infection in 5 cases, pelvic abscess in 2 women and accidental rectal injury was seen in one women. Conclusion: Although vaginal hysterectomy is a safe procedure, we may come across minor and at times major complications. So it is important to select patients carefully with proper and thorough pre operative assessment
