Abstract

(Abstracted from Obstet Gynecol 2017;130:190–197)

An inexpensive, nonsurgical treatment option for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence is the vaginal pessary; these are especially for women with severe medical comorbidities that make them poor surgical candidates. Although attempts at pessary fitting are successful in nearly 90% of patients, approximately half discontinue use within 24 months after fitting.
