Dextranomer (trade name Debrisan) is a cicatrizant used in dressings for wound healing, and in pharmaceutical products to treat fecal incontinence. It consists of dextran polymer chains cross-linked into a three-dimensional network.
Solesta is the marketed brand name of a system of injections of dextranomer in stabilized sodium hyaluronate for use in fecal incontinence (FI). This preparation is a biocompatible gel, for use as a perianal injectable bulking agent. The system is intended to be injected in the submucosal layer of the proximal anal canal (i.e. above the level of the dentate line).
