Description

Application

The urethra pessary consists of flexible silicone. The silicone thickness is adapted in a way that the same hands craft is required to compress the pessary. The pessary is mainly indicated in patients with stress incontinence possibly combined with descensus but with still intact pelvic floor. The pessary might prevent the development of further stress incontinence by the thickening of the pessary which is supposed to support the transition between bladder and urethra and to avoid an opening of the upper urethra under stress situations like coughing or movements (Figure). A shifting can also avoid seeping of urine into the urethra, which may even have a positive effect on urge or a mixture of stress and urge incontinence.

Note

The maximal uninterrupted period of application is 28 days. It is strongly recommended that the patient changes the pessary herself, i.e. she should remove it every evening and insert it in the morning. The patient should be trained about application / change by a healthcare professional. It helps to use different cremes for insertion, you better ask your gynecologist which creme you may use.
In former time, the pessary includes a metal spring for stabilization. This can negatively affect test results (e.g. CT, MRI, X-ray). It can positively affect magnetic security controls (e.g. at the airport). Please remove before medicals / security checks.
Since 2019 the silicon was adapted in a way that the metal ring is not any longer necessary.

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.
