GYNECARE TVT ABBREVO® Continence System
Less mesh, less dissection, same tension-free support1,130
GYNECARE TVT ABBREVO System is a 12cm transobturator mid-urethral sling used for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence.
Gynecare TVT ABBREVO provides excellent tension-free support with just 12 cm of mesh. It uses less mesh in the thigh muscles than a full length sling. That means that 84% less mesh is placed in adductor muscles and 38% less mesh overall.120,130
Like a full length obturator sling, GYNECARE TVT ABBREVO System provides sufficient support with the symmetrical bilateral placement of a 12-cm mesh, which reaches 3 key anatomical structures: obturator internus, obturator membrane and obturator externus.130
