SOURCECAP® Biosorbable Endcaps

An advanced approach to performing seed implants

The key to delivering quality prostate brachytherapy is placing the sources where you need them and keeping them there. The SOURCECAP® Bioabsorbable endcaps are designed to maximize resistance to movement while being compatible with your current delivery techniques. SOURCECAP® endcaps can be utilized with either BrachySource® Iodine or THERASEED® Palladium implants, and can be used with your exisiting applicators or be custom loaded in needles.

Overview

Manufactured using bioabsorbable 70:30 poly (L-lactide-co-D, L-lactide) material (same as SOURCELINK® System). The SOURCECAP® endcap material remains structurally intact eliminate 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
