Title: (EN) SUSPENSION OF FEMALE URETHROVESICAL JUNCTION AND ANCHORING MEANS THEREFOR
(FR) SUSPENSION DE LA JONCTION URETHROVESICALE CHEZ LES SUJETS FEMELLES ET MOYENS D'ANCRAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A method for suspending the urethrovesical junction in females comprises inserting sutures through a puncture or incision in the suprapubic abdominal area or through a puncture or incision in the vaginal wall, suspending the urethrovesical junction with the sutures, and anchoring the sutures with an anchoring means at an anchoring site. A system for positioning an anchoring means in living tissue comprises an insertion means primarily defined along a longitudinal axis to fit in a surgical needle, and an anchoring means. An anchoring means for anchoring a suture in tissue comprises a housing, a substantially cylindrical means within said housing for receiving a suture, and an adjusting means. Another anchoring means comprises a housing, a rotating spool within said housing, a driving gear, and an adjusting means.
