Minimally Invasive Sling

Advantages

  • Less Mesh.

  • Less Pain.

  • Less Anaesthetic.

  • Less Incision.

  • Less Recovery time.

This mid urethral sling inserted through a 1.5cm incision in the vaginal wall. It is designed to be minimally invasive and therefore reduce the risk of tissue trauma and bleeding. It features the same proven mesh used in over 750,000 procedures and employs one slim 2.3mm needle designed to minimize tissue trauma and help promote less dissection.

This sling uses only 8.5cms of mesh as apposed to other obturator slings which require up to 14cms. Small, integrated self-fixating tips provide significant holding force into the obturator muscle without pain and helps prevent migration during initial tissue fixation and ingrowth.
