GYNECARE INTERCEED absorbable barrier is a lightweight fabric that can be placed at the surgical site thus creating a physical barrier to prevent these areas from adhering to adjacent surfaces.
The film helps prevent post-operative adhesions by protecting and separating the surfaces where adhesions are likely to form.
GYNECARE INTERCEED barrier is then absorbed by the body as the healing process occurs.
The risk of adhesions after gynaecologic surgery is up to 97% and is a common occurrence.
The likelihood of adhesion formation and the seriousness of their consequences are based on multiple factors (e.g., type of surgery, number of previous surgeries, surgical technique, and the predisposition of individual patients).
However, studies have consistently shown that a majority of women who have gynaecologic surgery will experience some degree of adhesion formation, as this surgery is the most common cause of adhesions.
