A cuff by any other name?

The term "vaginal cuff" seems to confuse people. The first time I heard it, I honestly thought that the surgeon was going to turn the edges of my vagina up, like a cuff on a too-long sleeve or pants leg! What it really means, of course, is that if the cervix is removed, most surgeons stitch up the end of the vagina, like the toe of a tube sock.

So here's my question: if you personally were going to come with a new term for the vaginal cuff, what would you call it? Myself, I think that "pocket" sounds like a nice, cozy place to slip things into. ;-)

Where is the like button! Pocket and cul-de-sac are both winners. When trying to explain it to my husband, the best description I could come up with was a sock.
