Procedure Kit/Trays, Implant Delivery, Bladder Support, Transvaginal
Definition : Prepackaged collections (either custom or standard) of devices, instruments, and supplies necessary to the transvaginal delivery of solid or mesh sling implants, typically to place them in a midurethral position. Items in these kits usually consist of a curved needle that fits behind the pubic bone which is used for implant delivery; one or more dilating tapered tubes that minimize tissue damage; and a solid or mesh (frequently synthetic) sling (i.e., the implant). The sling may include a center tab to facilitate its placement. The kits may be supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Transvaginal delivery kits are intended for delivery and implantation of a urethral sling for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence in female patients.
