At FzioMed, our barrier gel for adhesion prevention after spinal decompression surgery is #1 worldwide. It is available under the brand names Oxiplex®, Oxiplex®/SP and MediShield™. 1,2

The flowable gel is supplied sterile in a 3mL syringe with a flexible applicator. It is placed at sites of tissue injury in the epidural space to serve as a temporary mechanical barrier separating opposing tissue surfaces.

Application of the gel during lumbar laminectomy, laminotomy, and other spinal procedures is simple and takes only seconds. The gel coats and isolates nerve fibers and dura, serving as a protective physical barrier that can reduce the formation of epidural fibrosis (adhesions) and can limit the exposure of nerves to biochemical irritants that are produced during surgery.
