Want to talk to experienced users?
Several leading trusts in the UK have started using Oxiplex, and we are happy to put you in touch with existing users to discuss or ask for information. Contact the JUNE Clinical Team and they will put you in touch.
For your own research, the substance is “polyethylene oxide-sodium carboxymethylcellulose gel”.
Here is an overview of the clinical evidence library:
Intrauterine (IU) adhesions are bands of scar tissue that form between the inner walls of the uterus, resulting from trauma to the uterus. Any surgical intervention of the uterine cavity can potentially create adhesions. Adhesions can occur even when surgeons use the best techniques, but using mechanical barriers to separate traumatized tissues during the healing period can reduce postoperative adhesions.
Many women develop IU adhesions following intrauterine surgery. Although some intrauterine adhesions can be asymptomatic, they can also cause problems such as: Infertility, menstrual cycle abnormalities, pain and discomfort, dysmenorrhea, recurrent pregnancy loss.
The benefit of using Oxiplex
The advantages of using Oxiplex/IU Adhesion Barrier Gel in intrauterine surgery include: Exceptional safety, designed and indicated for use in intrauterine surgery, ready to use, fast application, thorough coverage, no colour, protects the procedure, separates and coats tissues, reduces adhesions, optimizes healing, re-operations can be complicated by adhesions at original operative site, improves outcomes (less new) adhesions.
How is Oxiplex used?
Oxiplex/IU gel to coats surfaces that are damaged in the uterine cavity during intrauterine surgery. Application of the gel forms a temporary barrier as tissue heals. This protective physical barrier keeps opposing tissues separated, allowing them to heal optimally. Clinical studies have shown this protective barrier reduces the number of de novo adhesions following hysteroscopic surgery. Application of Oxiplex/IU gel during surgery is simple and takes only seconds. After surgery, the gel is absorbed by the body over a short period of time.
For which procedures
Adhesion barriers are a proven method of enhancing good surgical technique for procedures such as: Adhesiolysis, treatment for Asherman’s syndrome, dilation and curettage, removal of retained products of conception, myomectomy, polypectomy, uterine septum surgery.
