Preinduction of Labor

       Cervical Preparation Prior to Termination

       Tips for Insertion and Removal

Key Benefits:

• Gradual atraumatic dilation

• Significantly reduces the risk of cervical injury and suture repair

• Preserves full functionality of the cervix for future pregnancy Microtrauma provoked by ungentle or major instrumental dilation damage (especially with women who have not delivered yet or have undergone repeated dilations) the closing functionality of the cervix that results in its incompetence for the future pregnancies.

• No negative or undesirable pharmacological side effects

• Minimizing risk of uncontrolled abortions, e.g. during the night

• The greatest cervical dilation in the shortest timeframe of any osmotic dilators

• DILAPAN-S is preferable to laminaria for same day D&E procedure in 2nd trimester

• Very high patient acceptability

Instrumentation Of The Uterine Cavity

Unique combination of efficacy, safety and time-efficiency in cervical preparation

Thanks to the patented hydrogel AQUACRYL®, DILAPAN-S® ensures atraumatic and time-predictable dilation of the cervix. For instrumentations, that require dilation less than 6mm, the time of insertion of 1 piece dilator is shorter than 2 hours.

Proven efficacy and safety prior to the termination of pregnancy

"After 14 weeks of gestation, osmotic dilators provide superior dilatation to medical methods (grade B)"
          Royal Colleqe of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists: Evidence-based Clinical Guideline, No 7, 2011

"Osmotic dilators are safe and effective for preoperative cervical preparation prior to Dilation&Evacuation procedure (level A)"
          Society of Family Planning: Clinical Guidelines, 2007

“Of all the available osmotic cervical dilators, DILAPAN-S® achieves the greatest cervical dilation in the shortest timeframe. For same day procedures, DILAPAN-S® is preferable to laminaria.”
          Society of Family Planning: Clinical Guidelines, 2007

Recommended size and number of dilators:

Preparation of the cervix prior to hysteroscopy or termination of pregnancy / missed abortion
under 12 weeks of gestation:

      • Usually 1 piece

      • DILAPAN- S® 3x55mm or 4x55mm

Preparation of the cervix prior to the termination of pregnancy in later stage (2nd trimester):

      • Usually, 2-3 pieces are used, however, it is possible to use more dilators if they can be inserted
         without major resistance (3-5) and leave 12 hours in situ

       • DILAPAN-S® 4x65mm
