Manufactured using bioabsorbable 70:30 poly (L-lactide-co-D, L-lactide) material (same as SourceLink™ System). The SourceCap™ Endcap material remains structurally intact, eliminating extra spacing for 170 days allowing most of the dose to be delivered to the gland with the sources still in place.
- 0.5 cm overall length to allow 1.0 cm standard and 0.5 cm seed-seed spacing
- Increased overall diameter and surface area to better “grip” tissue within the needle track
- Seeds with SourceCap™ Endcaps can be delivered with existing applicator equipment or in preloaded needle configurations
- The SourceCap™ Endcap material has no impact on the seed dosimetry
The unique geometry of the SourceCap™ Endcaps creates increased resistance to motion — resulting in increased fixity at and following placement
