If a cystocele or rectocele accompanies the third-degree uterine prolapse, a Gehrung pessary—which rests along the anterior vaginal wall like a bridge—may be the most helpful. The Gehrung can be manually molded to fit each patient.
The Gehrung has malleable wires incorporated in the edge of the pessary that allow the device to be manually shaped to accomodate different anatomies. The pessary is designed to support both cystoceles and rectoceles as well as second to third degree prolapse.
The Gehrung pessary is more appropriate in cases where a cystocele tends to slip out when other pessaries are used. It derives its support from the remnants of the levator sling, laterally.
This avoids pressure on the rectum which, especially in older patients, may cause difficulty with normal bowel action.
The Gehrung pessary also provides broad support under the bladder and prevents the descent of the uterus. It does not interfere with vaginal douching or coitus.
