The club pessary consists of flexible silicone. The stem of the club pessary is supposed to avoid the gliding of the upper lying basis. Only those patients with grade 3 to 4 prolapse of vagina and uterus are treated with the club pessary, in cases where urethra, ring or bowl pessaries do not sustain the pressure and where a cube pessary might increase stress incontinence. Grade 4 prolapse may represent a big problem for the patient and a challenge for the physician. Before inserting the pessary, the prolapsed organs have to be reposed. Thereby the contents of the hernia have to be examined. If other organs apart from the uterus are contained in the prolapse, it has to be carefully pushed back with two hands.

Die The maximal uninterrupted period of application is unlimited. 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).
