Title (EN) TRANSVAGINAL ANCHOR IMPLANTATION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'IMPLANTATION D'UN ELEMENT D'ANCRAGE TRANSVAGINAL
Abstract:
(EN) Bone anchor implantation devices (10, 110, 210, 310) and methods for their use are disclosed. The bone anchor implantation devices (10, 110, 210, 310) and methods find particular application in maintaining or improving urinary continence by suspending or stabilizing the bladder neck. The devices and methods simplify procedures for suspending or stabilizing the bladder neck and further reduce their invasiveness.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs d'implantation (10, 110, 210, 310) d'un élément d'ancrage dans un os, ainsi que des procédés associés à l'utilisation de ces dispositifs, lesquels dispositifs et procédés sont notamment utiles dans le maintien ou l'amélioration de la continence urinaire, par suspension ou stabilisation du col vésical. Ces dispositifs et procédés permettent de simplifier les procédures de suspension ou de stabilisation du col vésical et présentent en outre l'avantage d'être moins vulnérants.
