I-STOP Non-Stretch Tape
for female Stress Urinary Incontinence
1998 The first Gynecare tape was sold in Europe by Vincent Goria.
1999-2000 The first reports of erosion arising from tape deformation were reported.
2000 Vincent Goria watched the removal of a tape that had deformed into a thin “rope”.
2001 Vincent Goria and a Mechanical Engineer studied the Ulmsten Integral Theory to draw up
specifications for a tape capable of resisting the force vectors described. A technical weaver with
30 years of experience designed the weave. CL Medical was formed to produce the I-STOP tape
2002 The first I-STOP tapes were implanted and in 2005 a paper was published in European Urology
covering 604 patients reporting less retention, dysuria and also less De Novo urgency
