TVT ABBREVO™ uses a refined obturator procedure so that you can use less mesh
the proven, reproducible, and safe inside-out procedure
3. Safe and accurate needle passage helps to avoid critical structures.
2. Uses a winged guide for accurate device introduction and passage.
1. Procedure starts at a well-defined point at the urethra.
Less mesh, less dissection Less mesh in thigh muscle may help reduce pain. - 32% less mesh overall. - 83% less mesh placed in adductor muscles.Only the Helical Passer penetrates the obturator membrane – no penetration from scissors or Winged Guide.
Less mesh, same tension-free support
Symmetrical bilateral placement of 12-cm mesh provides sufficient support.- Mesh reaches 3 key anatomical structures: obturator interns, obturator membrane and obturator externus.Similar initial fixation with a 12-cm mesh compared to a full length obturator mesh.
