By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Gastroenterology Week -- According to news reporting originating from Alexandria, Virginia, by NewsRx journalists, a patent by the inventors Deitch, Sarah J. (Minneapolis, MN); Morningstar, Randy Lee (Brooklyn Park, MN); Moschel, Mark A. (New Hope, MN); Witzmann, Michael M. (Shoreview, MN), filed on June 4, 2014, was published online on April 11, 2017 (see also Coloplast A/S).

The assignee for this patent, patent number 9615904, is Coloplast A/S (Humlebaek, DK).

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Devices for anatomical support, and particularly those for treatment of urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse have been proposed in recent years. Such devices have included suburethral sling devices for urinary incontinence, and mesh devices for pelvic organ prolapse. Sling devices are surgically implanted under a patient's urethra to provide support to the urethra so that during a provocative event such as coughing or laughing, urine is inhibited from leaking out of the urethra. Devices for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse are also surgically implanted, to inhibit herniation or prolapse of an organ (e.g., the bladder) into the vaginal space. Such support from the sling and mesh devices replaces natural anatomical support that is lacking in the patient. But implanting and anatomically securing some devices may be difficult and time consuming. Further, in the case of urinary incontinence, some sling devices may provide unreliable anatomical fixation and unacceptable adjustment or tensioning for supporting the urethra, thereby leading to suboptimal or even unacceptable results for treatment of urinary incontinence."

In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, NewsRx editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "This disclosure describes novel implantable devices that provide support to a urethra or other anatomical structure. This disclosure also describes novel tools and methods for use with the implantable devices.

"In one aspect, an implantable device for anatomical support includes a sling, a first interconnecting member that is coupled to the sling, and a second interconnecting member that is coupled to the sling. An adjustable anchor is slidably coupled to the first interconnecting member to permit bi-directional movement along the first interconnecting member, and configured to exert a compressive force generating frictional interference between the adjustable anchor and the first interconnecting member, to inhibit the bi-directional movement of the adjustable anchor along the first interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference. Also, a fixed anchor is fixedly coupled to the second interconnecting member. In another aspect, the first interconnecting member and the second interconnecting member are sutures. In another aspect, the first interconnecting member and the second interconnecting member are materials having an overall width approximating that of a surgical suture.

"In another aspect, an implantable device for anatomical support includes a sling, a first interconnecting member that is coupled to the sling, and a second interconnecting member that is coupled to the sling. An anchor is provided in freely sliding engagement with the first interconnecting member. A tensioning element is slidably coupled to the first interconnecting member to permit movement along the first interconnecting member and configured to exert a compressive force generating frictional interference between the tensioning element and the first interconnecting member, to inhibit the movement of the tensioning element along the first interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference. Also, a fixed anchor is fixedly coupled to the second interconnecting member. In another aspect, the first interconnecting member and the second interconnecting member are sutures. In another aspect, the first interconnecting member and the second interconnecting member are materials having an overall width approximating that of a surgical suture.

"In another aspect, an implantable device for anatomical support includes an anatomical support member and an interconnecting member that is coupled to the anatomical support member. An adjustable anchor is slidably coupled to the interconnecting member to permit bi-directional movement along the interconnecting member and configured to exert a compressive force generating frictional interference between the adjustable anchor and the interconnecting member, to inhibit the bi-directional movement of the adjustable anchor along the interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference. In another aspect, the anatomical support member is a shaped mesh material for treatment of prolapse. In another aspect, the interconnecting member is a suture. In another aspect, the interconnecting member is a material having an overall width approximating that of a surgical suture.

"In another aspect, an implantable device for anatomical support includes an anatomical support member, an interconnecting member that is coupled to the anatomical support member, and an anchor in freely sliding engagement with the interconnecting member. A tensioning element is slidably coupled to the interconnecting member to permit movement along the interconnecting member and configured to exert a compressive force generating frictional interference between the tensioning element and the interconnecting member, to inhibit the movement of the tensioning element along the interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference. In another aspect, the interconnecting member is a suture. In another aspect, the interconnecting member is a material having an overall width approximating that of a surgical suture.

"In another aspect an adjustable anchor, for use with an anatomical support member having an interconnecting member extending therefrom, includes a body having a proximal end and a distal end, wherein the distal end includes a flange section that is wider than the proximal end. A collar surrounds, and generates a compressive force against, the proximal end of the body, wherein the interconnecting member is disposed between the body and the collar, subject to the compressive force that generates frictional interference to inhibit bi-directional movement of the adjustable anchor along the interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference. In another aspect, a plurality of flanges protrude from the flange section, separated by webs. In another aspect, at least one flange has an angled edge. In another aspect, at least one web is self-creasing.

"In another aspect an adjustable anchor and a tool, for placing in a patient an anatomical support member having an interconnecting member extending therefrom, includes an anchor body having a proximal end, a distal end, and a channel extending longitudinally through the anchor body, wherein the distal end includes a flange section that is wider than the proximal end. An anchor collar surrounds, and generates a compressive force against, the proximal end of the anchor body, wherein the interconnecting member is disposed between the anchor body and the anchor collar, subject to the compressive force that generates frictional interference to inhibit bi-directional movement of the adjustable anchor along the interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference. A tool shaft has a proximal end, a shoulder, and a distal tip proximate the shoulder. A helical curve in the shaft terminates at the shoulder. The distal tip is configured to be placed in the channel through the anchor body such that the shoulder abuts the anchor body adjacent to the flange section. The helical curve is configured to guide the distal tip from a vaginal incision, around a descending ramus, and through an obturator foramen. In another aspect, a handle is coupled to the proximal end.

"In another aspect a surgical method is provided for use with (i) an implantable device having an anatomical support member, a fixed anchor coupled to the implantable device, an adjustable anchor, and an interconnecting member that couples the implantable device to the adjustable anchor in frictional sliding engagement, (ii) a first tool corresponding to a first side of a patient, and (iii) a second tool corresponding to a second side of a patient. The method includes placement of the fixed anchor on a distal tip of the first tool. A vaginal incision in the patient is entered with the fixed anchor on the distal tip of the first tool. The first tool is rotated in a direction corresponding to the first side of the patient such that the fixed anchor travels in a path around a descending pubic ramus on the first side of the patient, continuing in the path until the fixed anchor is placed in obturator tissue on the first side of the patient; and the first tool is removed from the patient. An adjustable anchor is placed on a distal tip of the second tool. The vaginal incision in the patient is entered with the adjustable anchor on the distal tip of the second tool. The second tool is rotated in a direction corresponding to the second side of the patient such that the adjustable anchor travels in a path around a descending pubic ramus on the second side of the patient, continuing in the path until the adjustable anchor is placed in obturator tissue on the second side of the patient; and the second tool is removed from the patient. The interconnecting member, in frictional sliding engagement with the adjustable anchor, is pulled to adjust a length of the interconnecting member between the anatomical support member and the adjustable anchor.

"In another aspect an implantable anatomical support includes a support body and at least three arms extending from the support body, an interconnecting member that is coupled to one each of at least two of the arms extending from the support body, and an adjustable anchor slidably coupled to each of at least two of the interconnecting members. The adjustable anchor is configured to permit bi-directional movement along the interconnecting member and configured to exert a compressive force generating frictional interference between the adjustable anchor and the interconnecting member to inhibit the bi-directional movement of the adjustable anchor along the interconnecting member unless sufficient force is applied to overcome the frictional interference.

"Another aspect provides a method of addressing pelvic dysfunction in a patient. The method includes forming an incision, and placing an anchor that is attached to a support member by an interconnecting member onto a distal tip of a tool. The method additionally includes inserting the distal tip of the tool and the anchor into the incision, guiding the anchor to an obturator foramen, and pushing the anchor through a membrane extending over the obturator foramen. The method further includes adjusting the support member by sliding the interconnecting member relative to the anchor."
