UroCure Expands SUI Sling Portfolio with the Nationwide Launch of the ArcSP and ArcTO Slings

UroCure and LiNA Medical USA are pleased to announce the nationwide launch of UroCure’s two latest innovations of surgical solutions for female stress urinary incontinence: the ArcSP Suprapubic Sling System and the ArcTO Transobturator Sling System.  These two additions complement the current UroCure ArcTV® Transvaginal Sling on the market. ArcSP will now provide a top-down, retropubic approach and ArcTO will accommodate surgeons that prefer an outside-in, transobturator approach. All three systems are based on AMS’ best-in-class slings, while incorporating UroCure’s laser cut sling with its patented stabilizing suture. The absorbable stabilizing suture is a key innovation of UroCure’s sling designed to maintain its open pore structure and to protect the sling from deformation during placement, tensioning, and sheath removal.

Study Shows Advantages for Stress Urinary Incontinence Surgery

One of the most commonly performed surgeries to treat stress urinary incontinence in women may have better long-term results than another common surgical technique, according to a study led by Mayo Clinic researchers.  The retrospective study of more than 1,800 cases at Mayo Clinic from 2002 to 2012 found that the need for additional surgery was twice as high after a transobturator sling surgery compared with a retropubic sling procedure. Reoperation rates within eight years after surgery were 11.2 percent for patients in the transobturator group compared with 5.2 percent in the retropubic group, according to the study, which will be published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology in August.
