Bladder Support Implants, Synthetic

Definition : Bladder support implants made of synthetic materials, designed for stabilizing the urethrovesical junction by providing compression of the urethral lumen and support to the urinary bladder. These implants are typically solid or mesh, sling-shaped devices made of synthetic material (e.g., silicone elastomer, polyglactic acid, polyester, polypropylene), which are intended for urethral, pubovaginal placement during surgical (e.g., prepubic, transobturator, suprapubic) procedures; some devices are fixed to the posterior pubic bone by sharp-tipped bone anchors.
