Bladder Support Implants, Biological

Definition : Bladder support implants made of biological tissue, designed for stabilizing the urethrovesical junction by providing compression of the urethral lumen and support to the urinary bladder. These implants are typically sling-shaped devices made of biological tissue and may be autografts (e.g., fascia lata, vaginal wall), allografts (usually from cadaver dura mater, fascia lata, or dermis), or xenografts (e.g., porcine dermis), which are intended for placement during surgical (e.g., prepubic, transobturator, suprapubic) procedures; some devices are fixed to the posterior pubic bone by sharp-tipped bone anchors.
