For the pelvic floor anatomy to be restored correctly, a prosthetic is needed to mirror the anatomical position of individual ligaments. If a neoligament can be created in the correct anatomical position, this will allow the pelvic forces to function normally.
The unique patented design of the TFS repairs organ prolapse by tensioning the ligaments and bringing laterally displaced connective tissue structures, such as ligaments and fascia, together. It combines soft tissue anchors with a polypropylene tape, fixed internally alongside the ligament and precisely tensioned using minimally invasive surgery.
The ability of the TFS to tension individual lax ligaments is a key element in the treatment of stress and urge incontinence, nocturia and other pelvic floor symptoms. The TFS does not compromise tissue elasticity within the pelvic floor allowing organs to move independently of each other.
WARNING: This device should be used only by surgeons familiar with the device, its intended use, any additional instrumentation and any available surgical techniques. Responsibility for correct patient selection, adequate training, experience in the choice and selection of the TFS Implant rests with the surgeon.
