Title (EN) INTEGRAL SLING CONNECTION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME INTEGRE ET PROCEDE DE RACCORD DE BRETELLE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention includes implantable sling systems for treating urinary incontinence and methods of forming such sling systems. In one embodiment, the sling includes connectors which are integrally molded over each end of the sling. The connectors are releasably attachable to a surgical needle during implantation in a tissue pathway to treat incontinence.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes implantables de bretelle pour le traitement de l'incontinence urinaire et des procédés de formation de ces systèmes de bretelle. Dans un mode de réalisation, la bretelle comprend des raccords qui sont moulés d'un seul tenant au-dessus de chaque extrémité de la bretelle. Les raccords peuvent être reliés de manière libérable à une aiguille chirurgicale pendant l'implantation dans un parcours ménagé dans un tissu, en vue du traitement de l'incontinence.
