The main advantages of using DILAPAN-S

• DILAPAN-S stimulates the release of endogenous prostaglandins, which degrade collagen fibers and soften the cervix. With this effect, it supports the physiological process of ripening of the cervix.

• Dilates the cervix gradually and the effect is gentle as well as predictable.

• Patient comfort is manageable on-site and at home.

• No negative or undesirable pharmacological effects to cervix.

Dilapan-S is a hygroscopic cervical dilator made of a patented hydrogel called AQUACRYL. It is a rigid hydrophilic stick that increases in volume
by absorbing fluids and comfortably dilating the cervix.
