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.1 The trocar features a smooth surface from handle to closed tip, to reduce tissue drag during needle passage. The trocar curvature and tip radius are designed so that the trocar maintains contact with the posterior aspect of the pubic bone.2
