Resumen

GARCIA TIRADA, Miriam  y  SOBRADO ROSALES, Zeida. Impacto de la panhisterectomía en la calidad de vida de la mujer. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.5, pp.442-449. ISSN 0864-2125.

85 menopausal patients from the climacteric-menopausia consulting room of "Enrique Cabrera" General Teaching Hospital were surveyed during 1998. Patients were divided into 2 groups: patients with surgical menopause and patients with natural menopause, 59 and 41 %, respectively. 12 patients with natural menopause and 23 castrated were selected and interviewed. They also underwent 3 psychological tests to register levels of situational anxiety, to determine the conflicts of the patient and to check the development of self concept. Menopause appeared before the age of 40 in 36 % of the castrated patients. The most frequent symptoms in both groups were: hot flashes, sweating, anxiety, insomnia and irritability. 62 % of the castrated patients referred symptoms hardly a month after the operation. In the group of patients with psychological study we found a high anxiety level in the castrated group (74 %), whereas in the group with natural menopause anxiety was 17 %. Uterine fibroma was the cause of castration in 70 % of the cases
