Implementation of PROMPT has been associated with improved outcomes in the UK, USA, Australia and Zimbabwe.

Durbin PLCDurbin logo

Durbin PLC is proud to be the UK Distributor for the IPAS MVA equipment (Manual Vacuum Aspiration) and Dilapan-S osmotic cervical dilator.

ERPC using electrical suction pumps is one of the mainstays of treatment for incomplete miscarriage (IM) or fetal demise (FD). There is now increasing interest in the use of MVA as an alternative. For many years the use of MVA, with the unique Ipas locking Aspirators, allowing finger-tip control of vacuum action, has been widespread throughout the USA for IM, FD and TOP (up to 12 weeks gestation) all under local anaesthesia. Recent RCOG and NICE Guidelines have highlighted the advantages of MVA.

Dilapan-S is a totally synthetic, guaranteed sterile, predictable cervical dilator with no pharmacological activity whatsoever – in labour pre-induction that means no excessive uterine stimulation and no effect on fetal heart rate. Please visit us to hear how these unique products could help you.
