Dilapan -S™ cervical dilator is a hydrophilic polymer rod used for dilation and ripening of the cervix. When inserted into the cervical canal, these sterile rods act in two ways:
- Draws fluid from the cervical tissue into the rod causing expansion of the rod which produces an outward radial force.
- Initiates endogenous prostaglandin release causing collagen degradation which softens the cervix.
