ORTHOVISC®

$52.00

Orthovisc is a sterile, non-pyrogenic solution of sodium hyaluronate. The sodium hyaluronate in Orthovisc functions as a tissue lubricant, and is thought to play an important role in modulating the interactions between tissues. It can also act as a viscoelastic support for maintaining separation between tissues. Orthovisc is indicated as a viscoelastic supplement or a replacement for synovial fluid in human joints. It is well suited for treatment of the symptoms of human synovial joint dysfunctions, such as osteoarthritis. The actions of Orthovisc are lubrication and mechanical support.

Description

Hyaluronic acid breaks down within the body as it ages. As this cushioning layer is lost from the knee, the bones in the joint start to rub together, causing inflammation and pain. When you inject Orthovisc into your patient’s knee, the joint is given the lubrication and cushioning it needs to function in a pain-free manner. This pain relief can last up to around 6 months before another Orthovisc treatment is needed.

Orthovisc is an injectable, clear, viscoelastic solution indicated for relieving osteoarthritis pain. Orthovisc’s main ingredient is ultra-pure, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which is similar to the hyaluronic acid normally found in the synovial fluid of the joints. Unlike some forms of hyaluronic acid, Orthovisc is made in the lab from bacterial fermentation, not from avian sources. This means it is less likely to cause allergic reactions in patients with egg or bird allergies.
