HOW DILAPAN S WORKS

-

DILAPAN-S IS A NON-PHARMACOLOGIC, MECHANICAL CERVICAL DILATOR

designed for gentle, safe, and predictable cervical ripening in the induction of labor1-4

It is composed of Aquacryl®, a firm, synthetic, patented hydrogel that increases in volume by absorbing fluids.2  

 

  • Each rod swells to several times its original diameter through absorption of moisture from the cervix.

  • Approximately 80% of rod swelling occurs within the first 4-6 hours after insertion. 

  • In a single procedure typically 3 to 5 rods are inserted, with the rods inserted one at a time.4,6

MULTIPLE MODES OF ACTION

After insertion, Dilapan-S initiates a cascade of biophysical, mechanical, and physiological changes in the cervical tissue that continue until removal of the rods.2,5

biopyhsical.png

BIOPHYSICAL

  • Dilapan-S rods are inserted into the cervical canal, where they absorb moisture from the cervix

  • Cervical tissue softens as it dehydrates

mechanical.png

MECHANICAL

  • Dilapan-S rods expand, exerting controlled radial pressure on the cervical canal, which dilates the cervix

physiological.png

PHYSIOLOGICAL

  • Stretching of the cervical tissue promotes the release of local endogenous prostaglandins 

  • Local prostaglandins initiate collagen degradation and cervical softening and ripening

With Dilapan-S the cervix gradually and predictably softens and dilates,  preparing the mother for the next step in induction of labor.2,5
