GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM) Pelvic Floor Repair System Launched in US for Use in Pelvic Organ Prolapse Surgery
Date:3/12/2009

First surgical mesh in US to incorporate partially absorbable mesh for use in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders; material designed to improve healing and patient comfort

SOMERVILLE, N.J., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Ethicon Women's Health & Urology, a division of Ethicon, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson Company, announced today that the GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM) Pelvic Floor Repair System is now available in the United States for use in surgery to treat pelvic organ prolapse. GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM) includes a partially absorbable mesh for increased biocompatibility and improved patient comfort.

The GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM) System is indicated for tissue reinforcement and long-lasting stabilization of fascial structures (fibrous organ connective tissues) of the pelvic floor in vaginal wall prolapse where surgical treatment is intended, either as mechanical support or as a bridging material for defective fascia. The mesh is implanted using the tension-free vaginal mesh (TVM) technique, a procedure involving a small incision in the vaginal wall.

The GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM) System includes anatomical guides, retrieval devices, cannulas, and the new partially absorbable mesh implant. This lightweight polypropylene mesh is less dense and has larger pores than previous meshes, which could lead to decreases in reactive scar formation and a reduction in inflammatory response during healing. This mesh also has properties that help the surgeon place the mesh more easily because it resists wrinkling and folding, and it has increased longitudinal elasticity while maintaining lateral support to ensure pliability after surgery. The new design may improve vaginal wall compliance and allow for better tissue incorporation.

"Thousands of women have been treated successfully with the GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM) System for pelvic organ prolapse. With GYNECARE PROLIFT+M(TM), surgeons now have an option tha
