Aris is a permanent, synthetic, midurethral support sling that has been developed specifically for implantation using the transobturator technique. Aris is a macroporous, knitted, monofilament polypropylene sling with low elasticity .
Low Elasticity and Less Material
The Aris sling has low elasticity at 7.5%, similar to collagen fibers. This allows the Aris sling an accurate tension-free adjustment. Aris has a thickness of 0.3mm for less implanted material and providing urethral support. (cf. 1)
No Sheath or Tensioning Suture
The Aris sling allows for simple and quick insertion, with no sheath or tensioning suture. No sheath reduces the complexity of the procedure and surgery time.
No Barbed or Tanged Edges
The Aris sling has unique, heat sealed edges without barbs facilitate easy passage during implantation, which helps to minimize trauma to the surrounding tissue.
Choice of Introducers
The Aris Sling System is supplied with the Aris sling and a set of 3 introducers- helical and a flat curved. The Aris introducers are ergo-dynamic allowing for easy grasp and passage thru the obturator space. The low 3.1mm profiles of the introducers are designed to minimize tissue damage during insertion and to minimize the extent of a blind passage. (cf. 1)
