RCOG | Post-hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse

This is an updated guideline from RCOG on managing vaginal vault prolapse after hysterectomy. There isn’t really anything new here, just confirmation of what we probably all do.

  • Pelvic floor muscle training is useful for mild prolapse. The evidence here is for one-to-one training.
  • Pessaries (both shelf and ring) are useful for all prolapse other than the very mild.
  • Surgery isn’t reserved for any specific degree of prolapse.

"The NASGP and the GP locum chambers that I'm in have provided invaluable assistance both before and through Covid-19 to me as a full-time GP locum. All aspects of locum work have been made easier as a result of membership and the chamber's support structure - from accessing work, to ensuring invoicing and documentation is all sorted, and access to other locums as peer support. Having a chamber manager means I feel more secure and can devote more of my energy on my clinical work."
