of prostate radiation therapy and improve your quality of life1
Barrigel is an advanced prostate spacer made from hyaluronic acid - a substance naturally present in the human body. Barrigel is fully absorbable by the body, it is a biocompatible alternative to hydrogel spacers.
The unique sculptable nature of Barrigel remains soft during insertion allowing your physician to sculpt the spacer in place creating an optimal fit for your body.
BARRIGEL remains stable throughout the course of your treatment until it is safely and fully absorbed by your body.2
Barrigel is the only gel spacer that can be viewed clearly on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) during the procedure.3 This added visibility during insertion provides your physician greater control and precision over the placement of the spacer.
