About BARRIGEL

Generation Next

BARRIGEL is an advanced prostate spacer made from hyaluronic acid – a substance naturally present in the human body. Highly compatible and fully absorbable by the body, it is a natural alternative to synthetic spacers. 

Personalised Fit

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.

Staying Power

BARRIGEL remains stable throughout the course of your treatment until it is safely and fully absorbed by your body.1

Procedural TRUS Imaging

Visually-Guided Spacing

BARRIGEL is the only gel spacer that can be viewed clearly on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) during the procedure.2 This added visibility during insertion provides your physician greater control and precision over the placement of the implant.
