Milex Shaatz Folding Pessary
Milex Shaatz Pessary
Milex Shaatz Pessary is used for patients that have a first or second degree prolapse with a mild cystocele.
The Shaatz is ideal for the patient that has a shallow pubic notch and cannot retain a ring pessary, OR for the patient that has developed pressure necrosis of the pubic notch with a Ring pessary.
The Shaatz uses the levator muscles to hold it in place. The holes in the pessary allow for drainage without reducing its effectiveness. The width of the vaginal vault helps determine the size of the Shaatz needed.
The Shaatz requires a capacious vaginal vault. The cervix rests behind the disc of the pessary.
To remove Milex Shaatz Pessaray
To remove the Shaatz, insert one finger into the large hole to bring the pessary down toward the introitus. Turn the pessary so that the rim is almost parallel to the introitus. With one or two fingers of the other hand, press down on the perineum and slide the pessary out.
