Yes, a vaginal vault smear is the same test as a pap smear.

Re: vaginal vault smear/pap?

Hi Janlar -

I don't know why you had your surgery so you may not have a vaginal vault smear. Since I had a cancer dx I'm having them every 3 months for 1 to 2 years. My gyn-onc also does abdominal, pelvic and rectal exams. It seems sometimes different doctors do different tests fo r different types of surgeries.
