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.
