Instrumentation of uterine cavity – Dilapan-S® is the right choice!

Mode of action


Thanks to the patented hydrogel AQUACRYL®, DILAPAN-S® ensures atraumatic and time-predictable dilation of the cervix.

For instrumentations with dilation up to 6 mm, insertion time of 1 rod is shorter than 2 hours

Achieved dilation of the cervix depending on Dilapan-S® insertion time


Dilapan-S, Graph active part dimensio 4mm / 3 mm

 Most of the effect is achieved in the first 4 to 6 hours.

The 3 mm rod expands to 8.3−10 mm. The 4 mm rod expands up to 10–12.5 mm.

Dilapan-S® is predictable, efficient, safe and enables the same-day D&E procedure

Dilapan-S® in the second trimester medical abortion

Clinical trials that were evaluating the use of Dilapan-S® in the second trimester medical pregnancy termination showed very interesting additional benefits of usage of Dilapan-S® in combination with misoprostol and mifepristone

Vincienne, M. et al: Comparison of the induction to delivery interval in terminations of pregnancy with our without Dilapan-S®. Fetal Diagnosis Therapy, 2017

  • Dilapan-S® significantly shortens the stay at delivery room and therefore saved the hospital budget
  • the use of Dilapan-S® did not extend the total length of hospitalisation
  • Dilapan-S® use decreases the total dose of used misoprostol

Gupta, J. et al., Synthetic osmotic dilators for cervical preparation prior to abortion – An international multicentre observational study, EJOG, 2018

  • combination of Dilapan-S® and misoprostol offers effective and safe procedure
  • insertion of 2−3 osmotic dilators for 4−7 hours provides effective cervical priming in majority of women
  • fast mode of action enables one-day procedure in majority of medical abortions − 81%
  • no serious adverse outcomes, including infectious complications, associated with the use of the synthetic osmotic cervical dilators 
  • easy to insert & remove (>90%)
