Hysterotomy abortion

A hysterotomy abortion is a form of surgical abortion. In a hyterotomy abortion, the womb is opened, and the fetus is removed. This is similar to a Caesarean section, but requires a smaller cut.[1]

This method has the greatest risk of complications out of all the abortion procedures.[2] It is only used where other methods can or should not be done. It is used between the 12th and 24th week of pregnancy.[2]
