Boston Scientific says early feedback on three new products to treat female stress urinary incontinence has been very positive. The products offer three different approaches for placing mid-urethral slings, which provide support on the pelvic floor. The Advantage system offers transvaginal delivery, the Lynx system is for supra-pubic placement and Obtryx enables placement laterally through the pelvis. All three are for use with Boston's Advantage Mesh sling. The company said the mid-urethral sling product market is worth $130m a year.
