The thick ring pessary consists of high-quality silicone. It can be stored at temperatures from 1 to 30 °C protected from UV radiation without contact to reactive media, gas, ozone or mineral oil.
A detailed updated clinical evaluation can be found under Downloads / Clinical Evaluation.
In contrast to normal ring pessary the thick ring consists of a larger circumference of the ring part. Thus the surface is larger and the risk of necrosis of the vaginal wall may decrease. Preferably older patients with mild forms of prolapse without incontinence are treated with this type. An intact pelvic floor (also if reduced) is required for this pessary.
The maximal uninterrupted period of application is 30 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 or additional therapies by healthcare professionals.
The product must not be used by other patients. The pessary may be cleaned by running water without using any disinfectant.
