A system (20) for treating pelvic organ prolapse includes a plug (22), a skirt (24), and an anchor (26). The plug includes a base opposite an apex with the base wider than the apex. An exterior surface of the apex is shaped to conform to an interior apical portion of a vagina. The skirt is attachable to the plug and includes multiple pores that are sized to allow tissue of the interior apical portion of the vagina to grow through the skirt. The anchor has a proximal portion that is insertable through the vagina and the skirt for attachment to the apex of the plug. The anchor has a length that allows a distal portion of the anchor to be attached to a sacrum of a patient.

A base plate (100) comprising an adhesive wafer (102) defining a through-going passage and a convex supporting device (104). The convex supporting device defines a first bending axis and a second bending axis, both of which axes define a right angle with a centre axis of the through-going passage.


The present invention relates to a convex shell (1) for use in a base plate of an ostomy appliance. The convex shell comprises an annular ring (5) defined by an outer edge (6) and an inner edge (7) defining a through-going hole (8). The annular ring has at least four transition sections (9, 10, 11, 12) extending transversely across the annular ring, dividing the annular ring into at least a first, second, third and fourth segment (15, 16, 17, 18).


A method of implanting a prosthetic in a penis includes moving a dilation portion of a dilator in a distal direction and in a proximal direction within the corpora cavernosum, dilating a first portion of tissue in the corpora cavernosum, and leaving a second grooved portion of the tissue in the corpora cavernosum un-dilated and vascularized.

An ostomy appliance having a base plate with an adhesive wafer and a convex supporting device. The convex supporting device is a shell (500) having an annular ring defined by an inner and an outer edge and having folding restriction means (507) for altering the flexibility of the convex shell when it folds or bends in use.


A method of implanting a penile prosthetic includes using a tool and grasping a penile prosthesis between a first jaw and a second jaw of the tool. The method includes inserting the first jaw and the second jaw and a portion of the penile prosthesis into the dilated corpora cavernosum, releasing the penile prosthesis from the jaws, and removing the jaws out the dilated corpora
