Patients may be continent immediately after this minimally invasive procedure, and most resume normal daily activities one to two weeks later.1-3 The system consists of the following:
- Sling: This component acts as a “hammock” to reposition and support the urethra.4 It features a heat-sealed edge for sling fixation. Polypropylene liner reduces pull-through resistance during sling passage and enables desired sling placement prior to sling fixation. Resorbable tensioning suture increases sling tensile strength.
- Needle Passers: Helical wireform is designed specifically for transobturator needle passage in the male anatomy. Arrows indicate on which side of the patient’s body they should be used.
- Percutaneous Needle: It assists in the identification of the correct obturator foramen needle passer entry point.
- Disposable Retractor System: Consisting of the Retractor Ring and Blunt Stay Hooks, it assists with surgical retraction and increases your field of view.
