What is Dilapan-S Dilapan
Dilapan-S® is an osmotic hygroscopic cervical dilator from a patented Aquacryl® hydrogel that guarantees consistency of action. It is a rigid gel rod that increases in volume by absorbing fluids, gradually dilating the cervix.
Simultaneously, Dilapan-S® initiates endogenous prostaglandin release, causing collagen degradation which softens the cervix.
Indications of use: Induction of Labor
Cervical Ripening Prior to the Induction of Labor:
FDA Approved for Pre-Induction of Labor
Cervical Dilation Prior to Instrumentation of the Uterine Cavity:
Termination of Pregnancy
Embryo Transfer, in Vitro Fertilization, Endometrial Biopsy, Hysteroscopy, and IUD Insertion
Recommendations for use by size:
When Dilapan-S 4mm cannot be inserted in early pregnancy, or when removal is to be accomplished in less than 4 hours; IUD insertion, Embryo Transfer, IVF, Hysteroscopy, and Endometrial Biopsy
Cervical ripening prior to induction of labor
Cervical dilation prior to the termination of pregnancy
Significant increase in cervical ripening
Very high patient acceptability
No pharmacological side effects
High predictability due to material and mode of action
