The bowl or sieve bowl pessaries consist of flexible silicone. Therefore they are elastic and can be easily folded and can be inserted and removed without causing pain. Preferably mild forms of pelvic relaxation and prolapse are treated by the bowl pessary. In patients with a cystocele the pessary supports both the medial and the lateral defect. The contact to the pelvic floor (Figure) also increases adhesion. However, an intact pelvic floor is required for this pessary.

The maximal uninterrupted period of application is 28 days. It is recommended that the patient changes the pessary herself, i.e. she may remove it in the evening and insert it in the morning. The patient should be trained about application / change by a healthcare professional.

 The product must not be used by other patients and be stored by room temperature. The pessary may be cleaned under warm running water without using any disinfectant. The material can be cleaned and disinfected preferably with aldehyd-containing solutions (Gigasept FF). The pessary can also be sterilized by steam (134ºC /3,8 bar) or hot air (250ºC).
