As we mentioned in other articles, endometriosis growth somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Hysterectomy always is the last resource in treating endometriosis for woman who has exhausted all the treatments without success, or endometrial tissues has become cancerous, her doctor may suggest some kinds of hysterectomy. If the hysterectomy is decided and the gynecologist is chosen then pre operative evaluation is necessary to make sure that all requirements are address for a successful surgery.
in this article, we will discuss types of anesthesia as pre operative evaluation before hysterectomy.

According to the American society of Anesthesiologist (ASA), each year more than 40 million anesthetics are given to patients in the United States. Anesthesia is a state that operation can be performed by surgeons in which the patient feels no pain. there are 4 common types of anesthesia.

1. General anesthesia

During general anesthesia the patient is unconscious( put into deep sleep) during the time of surgery. Surgery commonly done under general anesthesia are open heart surgery, lung surgery, brain surgery and hysterectomy in the abdomen regions.

2. Local anesthesia

Also known as regional anesthesia, in local anesthesia, only one part of the body that the surgeon is operated is injected with anesthesia resulting of one area of nerves are blocked and the patient only is loss feeling to that part of body.

Local anesthesia is used usually for minor surgeries, such as knee or hip replacements.

3. Spinal anesthesia

With spinal anesthesia, the anesthesia is injected into the lower back of the patient blocking the information between nerve in he lower back and the brain.

4. Epidural anesthesia

Under epidural anesthesia, is a form of regional anesthesia in which a narrow tube, (also called a catheter) is placed in the epidural space with the insertion of a special needle into the back. After the needle is withdrawn, the anesthesia is given through catheter into the epidural space. The advantage of epidural anesthesia is more anesthesia medication can be given through the catheter throughout the operation, if necessary.

Under endometriosis hysterectomy, usually general anesthesia is given. We will discuss anesthesiology consultation in the next article.
