Procedure Kit/Trays, Implant Delivery
Definition : Prepackaged collections (either custom or standard) of devices, instruments, and supplies necessary to place implants in appropriate positions according to the intended use. Items in these kits usually consist of the implantable device (e.g., bladder support slings, cardiac valves, foot implants), instruments for delivery (e.g., inserters, applicators, drivers, guides, needles, sizers, trial implants), and ancillary devices and/or supplies (e.g., catheters, cannulae, solutions). 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. Implant delivery kits are available according to the type of surgical procedure to be performed (e.g., open surgery, laparoscopy, catheterization), the natural cavity and/or surgical orifices through which they will be deployed, and the device to be implanted.
