Control is in your hands

The GYNECARE TVT EXACT Continence System integrated delivery system has a rigid 3.0-mm diameter trocar shaft designed to maintain control during passage while reducing penetration force.142 The trocar features a smooth surface from handle to closed tip, to reduce tissue drag during needle passage. The ergonomic handle improves tactile feedback during tissue passage.

Same trusted laser-cut mesh1

The laser-cut mesh is the most-used implant among retropubic surgeons globally, and the laser-cut mesh offered in GYNECARE TVT™ Tension-free Support for Incontinence and GYNECARE TVT EXACT® Continence System has similar stretching characteristics as the original mechanical-cut mesh within expected physiological ranges.

Same smooth implant sheath

Laser-cut mesh has been in use since 2005. The edgeless plastic implant sheath is easily removed to minimize mesh pre-tensioning and distortion.
