Adhesions are formed in 55-100% of patients who had reproductive pelvic surgery, whether open or laparoscopic.1 These adhesions may cause infertility2, chronic pelvic pain (CPP)2,3, small bowel obstruction (SBO)4, intraoperative complications2 and subsequent surgery2. GYNECARE INTERCEED™ Absorbable Adhesion Barrier has been shown in various gynecologic studies to reduce the rate of adhesion formation.A5-8 It has decades of proven safety and efficacy in a wide variety of open gynecologic procedures: Adhesiolysis, Ovarian Surgery, Myomectomy, Tubal Surgery, and Surgical Treatment of Endometriosis.9

About this Device

GYNECARE INTERCEED Barrier is is a sterile, single-use-only, absorbable off-white knitted fabric prepared by the controlled oxidation of regenerated cellulose. It reduces the formation of adhesions by physically separating the surfaces of tissues that are adjacent to each other during the reperitonealization phase. Available in 7.6 cm x 10.2 cm (3 inches x 4 inches) in sterile foil envelopes.7

Specialties

Gynecology
 

Procedures

Ahesiolysis, Oophorectomy, Salpingectomy, Myomectomy, Hysterectomy, and Pelvic Floor Reconstruction

Economic Evidence

A budget impact model from the hospital perspective predicts a 75% use of GYNECARE INTERCEED Absorbable
Adhesion Barrier would produce cost savings for all open gynecologic procedures.13

Potential impact of implementing GYNECARE INTERCEED Barrier in gynecology surgery13:

  • OR Time savings: -$41,078
  • Shorter length of stay: - $178,776
  • Fewer Readmissions: -458,220
  • Net cost of uptake to hospital: -$540,823

Clinical Evidence

In a Level 1 classication meta-analysis of 13 RCTs, use of GYNECARE INTERCEED Absorbable Adhesion Barrier was associated with reduced incidence of de novo adhesions and re-formed adhesions vs no treatment.B10

Percent of adhesion-free outcomes:

  • 63% Reproductive surgery in infertile womenA7,8 
  • 51% Adhesiolysis5
  • 50% Surgical Treatments of Endometriosis11
  • 47% Ovarian SurgeryA6,7
  • 50% Tubal Surgery12
  • 58% Fimbria Surgery12 

Features & Benefits

gynecare interceed in pelvis

Effective

GYNECARE INTERCEED was 1.6X to 2X more effective than good surgical technique alone in reducing the risk of adhesions.C9
 

Gynecare Interceed adhesion barrier

Bacteriostatic Efficacy

Unlike Seprafilm® Adhesion Barrier, GYNECARE INTERCEED exhibits in vitro bacteriostatic efficacy against bacteria commonly associated with SSI risk: MRSA, MRSE, VRE and E. coli.14

gynecare interceed protective coating

Protective Coating

Forms a continuous protective coating during the critical 5-day to 7-day peritoneal healing period.1
 

Device Specifications and Comparisons

GYNECARE INTERCEED™ Absorbable Adhesion Barrier is indicated as an adjuvant in general abdominal and gynecological pelvic surgery for reducing the incidence, extent and severity of postoperative abdominal adhesions after meticulous hemostasis has first been achieved.7
