Procedure Kit/Trays, Implant Delivery, Bladder Support, Prepubic
Definition : Prepackaged collections (either custom or standard) of devices, instruments, and supplies necessary to place bladder support implants (typically solid or mesh slings) in an appropriate position outside the pelvic bowl (i.e., prepubic). Items in these kits usually consist of a curved, needle-like hook with a handle that facilitates the implant delivery, one or more dilating tapered tubes that minimize tissue damage, and a solid or mesh (frequently synthetic) sling (i.e., the implant); the sling may include a center tab to facilitate its placement. 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. Prepubic delivery kits are intended for delivery and implantation of a urethral sling for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence in female patients.
