Risk stratification and proper prophylactic management are required to prevent PONV, particularly in high-risk patients.

After the procedure, the patient went stable and moved to be treated at the ward for 3 days. No nausea and vomiting were observed until the patient was discharged. Conclusion: In this case report, the combination of ondansetron and dexamethasone were sufficient to prevent PONV after TAH-BSO procedure.
