The Hodge pessary is only used in cases with stress incontinence, if ring pessaries are not tolerated because of anatomical aberrations, frequently caused by previous surgery.
The Hodge pessary was introduced as a stiff ring pessary bent in two dimensions.
Hereby, the elevation of the retroflexed uterus was the primary goal, an indication which has lost its significance.
Our Hodge pessaries consists of silicone with a semi-rigid aluminium filling allowing for various shaping and adapting to individual circumstances.
