A new technique of using double vaginal ring pessaries to treat uterovaginal prolapse in a group of elderly women is described. Eighteen women with a mean age of 82 years and advanced Stage III or IV uterovaginal prolapse had double vaginal rings inserted. All of them previously had used single vaginal ring pessaries or had undergone pelvic floor repair surgery. Double ring pessaries were successful in 13 of the 18 women. They are a useful treatment of advanced prolapse in women unsuitable for surgery.
