A penile prosthetic (20) includes a penile implant (26) sized for insertion into a dilated corpora cavernosum of a penis and an insertion sleeve. The penile implant includes a proximal tip (30) that is insertable into a crus penis and an inflatable bladder (28) connected to the proximal tip. The inflatable bladder has a first column strength and includes a distal tip (32) that is insertable into a glans penis. The insertion sleeve (40) is attachable to an outside surface of the inflatable bladder. The insertion sleeve is soluble in saline or water.

The invention describes a hysteropexy apparatus comprising a hysteropexy mesh (10) including: an anterior vaginal portion (12) that is substantially rectangular in shape; a right broad ligament portion (14) that is substantially L-shaped and extending from one long edge of the anterior vaginal portion, a left broad ligament portion (16) that is substantially L-shaped and extending from another long edge of the anterior vaginal portion, with the anterior vaginal portion folded on a longitudinal midline of the anterior vaginal portion, a sacral portion (18) that is substantially rectangular in shape, and a posterior vaginal portion (20) that is substantially rectangular in shape, with the sacral portion folded onto the posterior vaginal portion; and a package containing the hysteropexy mesh.


A surgical tool adapted for placement of a cuff of an artificial urinary sphincter around a portion of a urethra includes a head attached to a handle. The head has a recess formed in a first end surface of the head and two pads. The recess is sized to receive an inferior portion of the urethra. A first pad is located on a first side of the recess, and a second pad is located on a second side of the recess and spaced a gap distance away from the first pad. A piercing mechanism is located in and movable out of one of the first pad or the second pad. The piercing mechanism is movable across the gap distance between the first pad and the second pad to form a channel in tissue superior to the urethra.


A pump includes a pump bulb connected to a pump body. An exhaust valve assembly is disposed in the pump body within an exit flow path communicating between the pump bulb and the cylinder. An inlet valve is rotatably disposed in the pump body within an inlet flow path communicating between the reservoir and the pump bulb. The inlet valve includes a spherical part retained in a seat formed by the pump body, an inlet flange connected to and extending radially away from the spherical part, and a lockout flange connected to and extending radially away from the spherical part. A channel is formed through a portion of the spherical part of the inlet valve. The channel includes an outlet hole that is blocked from the inlet flow path by the seat formed in the pump body and opened to the inlet flow path by rotation of the inlet valve.

An ostomy appliance (101) comprising a pouch and a filter construction (110) is provided. The filter construction has a first (111) and second (112) foil layer to provide an enclosure for the elements in the filter construction. The filter construction is attached inside the pouch so that the filter construction is free-hanging inside the pouch. The two foil layers may be generally parallel with the walls of the ostomy bag. The foil layers are provided with numerous holes functioning as gas-inlets (114) for the filter construction. The filter construction includes a prefilter element (115) and a deodorising filter (117). The ostomy appliance can be used in a method for collecting discharge, in a method for reducing the number of balloonings and in a method of increasing the time to ballooning.

A lockout valve assembly (280) of an implantable penile prosthetic includes a body (132) and a lockout valve (110). The body is attachable between a reservoir and a pump of the implantable penile prosthetic. The lockout valve includes a core (120) rotatably disposed inside the body, an inflation channel (140) formed through a portion of the core, a deflation pathway separate from the inflation channel and formed through a diameter of the core, and a one-way check valve disposed in the deflation pathway of the core.


A penile prosthetic (20) includes an insertion tool (40) contained inside of an inflatable bladder (28) of a penile implant (26). The penile implant is sized for insertion into a dilated corpora cavernosum of a penis. The penile implant has a proximal tip (30) that is insertable into the crus penis, with the inflatable bladder connected to the proximal tip. The inflatable bladder has a first column strength and includes a distal tip that is insertable into the glans penis. The insertion tool provides the inflatable bladder with an effective column strength that is greater than the first column strength.

A dilator (20) configured for dilating tissue of a corpora cavernosum of a penis having a dilation body (22) defined along a longitudinal axis of the dilator and an extendable wing (24) connected to the dilation body. A knob (26) is provided at a first proximal end portion of the dilation body and is configured to communicate with the extendable wing. Rotating the knob extends the extendable wing away from the dilation body and changes an effective diameter of the dilator. Also disclosed is a method of dilating the corpora cavernosum of a penis and a method of implanting a penile prosthetic in the corpora cavernosum of a penis.
