RETROPUBIC SLINGS SYSTEM TO TREAT FEMALE STRESS URINARY INCOTINENCE
STEEMA Retro is a retropubic sling system, developed for the treatment of female urinary incontinence. The transvaginal sling system, equipped with green connector arms on each side, the Teflon® sheath and the positioning tab, brings all features which helping the surgeon to perform an easy, secure and gentle implantation. Once the implantation is completed, only the sling made from polypropylene type 1 is left in the patient to give support to the urethra and therefore restore continence. Right after the implantation, before tissue ingrowth, the sling anchors itself to the tissue by using a Velcro®-like effect and gets along without additional fixation.
STEEMA RETROBUBIC SLING
Steema is a Premium Retropubic Sling, designed to provide surgeons with a better and safer procedure. Beside the features which supports the surgeon within the implantation, the sling made from polypropylene typ 1 with its thermosealed edges, offers an excellent balance of the main biomechanical requirements, as tissue integration and low elasticity, to enable the restorage of continence.
STEEMA RETROBUBIC NEEDLE
The STEEMA Retropubic Needle and the green connector arms form a reliable team to lead the sling through the retropubic space smooth and safely.
