ORTHOVISC is an injection aimed at treating knee pain as a result of osteoarthritis.
It is recommended for patients who have tried previous arthritis medication without success.
How does Orthovisc work and how long does it last for?
Orthvisc relieves the symptoms of osteoarthritis by providing lubrication and support to the joint.
The hyaluronon is similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints and acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints.
It is usually administered as 3 weekly intra-articular injections to provide pain relief for up to 6 months.
Who should not use Orthovisc?
Anyone who has an infection in the knee or the skin around the knee.
Anyone with known hypersensitivity to hyaluronate.
Anyone with known systemic bleeding disorders.
What are the associated side effects?
Common side effects may include joint pain, swelling or mild discomfort at the site of injection. These symptoms should disappear within a week.
