Ethicon, Inc., recently announced the availability of the Gynecare TVT Exact Continence System, a minimally invasive retropubic sling used in an outpatient setting for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.

The product’s integrated system offers an ergonomically designed handle to improve physician control during surgery, according to the company.

Gynecare TVT Exact builds on the design of the Gynecare TVT Tension-free Support for Incontinence and is available for physicians in a ready-to-use, single-patient sterile kit. The newly designed device handle and insertion needle help physicians maintain better control during insertion of the mesh sling.

"The Gynecare TVT Exact retropubic sling maintains the key components and key concepts of the original Gynecare TVT retropubic sling," said Ethicon consultant Marc R. Toglia, MD, of Main Line Health System in Philadelphia. "The new instrumentation simplifies the overall procedure by allowing for a single cystoscopy, while preserving the key procedural steps familiar to thousands of surgeons worldwide."
