TiLOOP® Tape


The titanised TiLOOP® Tape vaginal tape mesh implants are used to treat female stress incontinence. They are placed suburethrally and free of tension. Any retropubic/retrosympheseal (TVT) and transobturator (TVT-O) technique can be applied.


Benefits

Reduced Risk of Inflammation  Compared to simple polypropylene, the hydrophilic, titanised surface represents a lower risk of inflammation — and therefore less scar formation.4

Individual  Based on the patient, you can choose from two degrees of elasticity: TiLOOP® Tape has a higher elasticity and TiLOOP® Tape has a lower elasticity.

By urogynaecologists, for urogynaecologists  All TiLOOP® mesh implants were developed together with urogynaecologists and are 100% Made in Germany.

Knowledge

Highest demands on the material

In addition to the skills of the surgeon, the quality of the mesh material determines the quality of a lasting and anatomically stable descensus repair. TiLOOP® mesh implants are made of Type 1a polypropylene mesh (macroporous & monofilament)5 with a titanised, hydrophilic surface. Compared to simple polypropylene, this offers a number of advantages, which are already known in the use of titanised mesh implants for hernia surgery, such as:

  • better cell growth6
  • lower risk of inflammation7
  • less scarring7
  • less shrinkage of the mesh8
Increased cell vitality of fibroblasts through polypropylene surface titanisation (6)
