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.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
