Cube Pessary Non Perforated
The non perforated cube pessary is indicated in patients with more severe complaints of prolapse of the vagina and/or uterus for whom the pelvic floor is too weak to support ring pessaries.
The vacuum effect of the concave surface permits adhesion so that this pessary can be used in cases with severe prolapse and incompetence of the pelvic floor. The cube pessaries are also suitable for expanding the vagina before vaginal operations to stimulate local blood supply if coated with oestrogen cream.
The flexibility of the material permits the daily change of the pessaries by the patient herself with a thread which is fixed either at the edge or centrally.
The Cube pessary is also recommended for young women who only have urine leakage when engaged in strenuous physical activity such as aerobics, jogging, tennis, etc.
The ease of insertion and removal allow for use of the Cube only during the limited time of heightened activity.
To remove the Cube, work 2 or 3 fingers between the pessary and the vaginal wall to break the suction. Pinch the pessary and remove – DO NOT PULL ON THE STRING! The string allows for ease in locating the pessary for removal.
Pulling the string before breaking the suction to try and remove the Cube pessary can traumatize the tissue and/or result in string breakage.
