From: The effect of obesity on intraoperative complication rates with hysteroscopic compared to laparoscopic sterilization: a retrospective cohort study

Serious complication, number (%)a Laparoscopic (n = 433) Hysteroscopic (n = 277) P value
Resection of tube 2 (0.5) 1 (0.4) 1.0
Bleeding from tube 10 (2.3) 2 (0.7) 0.1
Cervical repair 4 (0.9) 3 (1.1) 1.0
