ADCON®Gel is a biocompatible, resorbable gel that provides a physical barrier to inter-tissue adhesions. This is achieved by inhibiting fibroblast migration onto and around neural or tendinous structures. The design of ADCON®Gel is based on the concept of establishing a temporary basal lamina by combining an absorbable, collagen-derived material with a resorbable polyglycan ester. A major function of basal lamina is to provide a physical barrier to certain cells and molecules (including fibroblasts). ADCON®Gel is the combination of polyglycan ester with porcine gelatine and buffered saline. It shows excellent physical barrier functions, while at the same time preventing fibroblast ingrowth. ADCON®GEL IS: A biocompatible, absorbable, flowable gel composed of porcine gelatine and a polyglycan ester in phosphate buffered saline A physical barrier which inhibits fibroblast migration on and around neural and tendinous structures Resorbed in approximately 4 weeks A cost effective dosage in sterile kits for easy, controlled application of the gel APPLICATION OF ADCON®GEL Surgical Procedure and general Guidelines: Follow accepted standard techniques for each indicated procedure Achieve complete haemostasis Apply ADCON®Gel Perform wound closure SPINE Apply the ADCON®Gel adequately, yet sparingly in the following areas immediately prior to closure of soft tissue incisions: Coat the existing nerve root along all its surfaces (anterior, posterior, medial and lateral surfaces), and within the radicular foramen. Apply ADCON®Gel around the cephalic extent of the nerve root, getting under the exposed surface of the lamina by approximately 1 cm cephalad.
