Bio Visc Ortho
Sodium Hyaluronate 10mg/ml
Bio Visc Ortho is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, viscoelastic fluid used as a temporary replacement and supplement for synovial fluid (the thick fluid that surrounds, lubricates and protects the joints).
Synovial fluid, which is viscoelastic due to the presence of hyaluronic acid, is found in all synovial joints, particularly the large weight bearing joints, where it ensures normal, painless movement due to its lubricating and shock absorbing properties. It is also responsible for the nutrition to the cartilage. In degerative joint disorders such as osteoarthritis, the viscoelasticity of the synovial flud is markedly reduced thereby decreasing its lubricating and shock-absorbing functions. This increases mechanical loading of the joint and cartilage destruction which ultimately results in pain and restricted mobility of the affected joint.
Supplementing this synovial fluid with intra-articular injections of highly purified hyaluronic acid can ameliorate the viscoelastic properties of synovial fluid. This improves its lubricating and shock-absorbing functions and reduces mechanical overload of the joint. As a rule this results in a decrease in pain and an improvement in joint mobility which may last for several months after a treatment cycle of intra-articular injections.
Bio Visc Ortho (Sodium Hyaluronate 10 mg/ml for Osteoarthritis use) is supplied sterile in a glass syringe delivering 1 ml, 2ml and 3 ml solution.
