PREINDUCTION OF LABOR

Gentle and predictable preinduction of labor

“Preinduction is a set of methods that result in ripening of the cervix in the means of its pliability, shortening and softening”

Roztočil A.: Preindukce a indukce porodu — Doporučený postup, 2010

“The maturity of the cervix is an indicator of the likelihood that the labor induction will result in successful vaginal delivery”

Ramos, L. S. et al.: Induction of Labor, Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics of North America, 2005

DILAPAN-S® significantly enhances cervical ripening and increases the Bishop Score enabling effective and safe labor induction.

Labor induction should be initiated only with sufficiently matured cervix (Bishop Score higher than 5).

The use of DILAPAN-S® is linked with minimum uterine activity during the ripening process

“Onset of regular uterine activity as a result of preinduction is a negative and unwanted side effect”

Roztočil et al.: Kontroverze a chyby v indukci porodu, Moderni gynekologie a porodnictví, 2007

“The principal role of the agents used for cervical ripening is to soften an unripe cervix independent of uterine activity"

Ramos, L. S. et al.: Induction of Labor, Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinics of North America, 2005
