Dilapan-S

Hygroscopic Cervical Dilator

A NEW APPROACH TO LABOUR INDUCTION

Dilapan-S® is an osmotic hygroscopic dilator produced from a patented Aquacryl® hydrogel that guarantees consistency of action. It is a rigid gel rod that increases in volume by absorbing fluids from the cervical canal, so gradually dilating the cervix. After 2-6 hours, the 3mm road will have expanded to 8.3 – 10 mm and the 4 mm rod up to the 10-12.5mm. This allows the gradual dilation and softening of the cervix. Simultaneously, Dilapan-S® initiates endogenous prostaglandin release causing collagen degradation which softens the cervix.


Dilapan-S® is sterilized by irradiation. It is manufactured in an ISO 13485 Certified facility and is fully CE Certified under the Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC). Approved by FDA for sale in the United States.

GENTLE AND PREDICTALE CERVICAL RIPENING PRIOR TO LABOUR INDUCTION

Hygroscopic dilators (like Dilapan-S) significantly enhance cervical ripening and increase the Bishop Score enabling smoother labour induction, while also producing minimal uterine activity during the ripening process.


Key Benefits:
  • Significant increase in cervical ripening and Bishop score
  • High predictability due to material and mode of action
  • Minimal risk of uterine hyperstimulation and impact on the fetal heart rate
  • No pharmacological side effects
  • Effective and safe even in women with caesarean section in medical history
  • Accentuates the physiological processes of labour
  • Very high patient acceptability
Indications for use:
  • Cervical ripening prior to the induction of labour
  • Cervical dilation prior to instrumentation of the uterine cavity, eg. Termination of pregnancy, ERPC, fetal demise
Contra-indications:
  • Clinically evident genital infection
  • Menstruation
