Pessaries are frequently used in cases of vaginal prolapse. Many different type of pessaries have been used in the past and are still in use today. In general it is considered to be a safe and simple form of therapy but little is known on the success rate, the indications and the optimal management. We give an overview of the history, type, indications and complications of pessaries, and give guidelines for daily practice.
