Procedure Kit/Trays, Implant Delivery, Bladder Support, Transobturator
Definition : Prepackaged collections (either custom or standard) of devices, instruments, and supplies necessary to the transobturator delivery of solid or mesh sling implants, typically to place them in a midurethral position. Items in these kits usually consist of a needle-like hook with a handle (e.g., curved, helical configurations) that facilitates the implant delivery thorough a groin incision, the obturator membrane, and around the descending ischiopubic ramus; a dedicated assembly for carrying and tightening the sling; and a solid or mesh (e.g., biologic, synthetic) sling (i.e., the implant). 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. Transobturator delivery kits are intended for delivery and implantation of a urethral sling for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence in female patients.
