In Osteoarthritic Knees, the pathologic changes of the synovial fluid cause it to lose its lubricity and shock absorbing function. This leads to the concept of Viscosupplement.
The goal of viscosupplement is to improve the viscoelasticity of synovial fluid, replicating healthy joint function by increasing the molecular weight and concentration of Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
INDICATION FOR VISCOSUPPLEMENT
Early and Moderate Stage Osteoarthritis
