The patient, a man aged >75 years, had a multiyear history of chronic unilateral knee pain, during which time he had received a series of three intra-articular injections of hyaluronate sodium 2 years previously, and several intra-articular injections of triamcinolone with bupivacaine, the last of which occurred 15 days before he sought care at hospital A for a swollen knee.
The Division of Public Health reviewed MedWatch data ([dagger]) and did not identify any reports of Veillonella infection associated with hyaluronate sodium, triamcinolone, or bupivacaine.

Suplasyn is an intra-articular hyaluronate sodium solution made by Bio-niche Life Sciences, Inc.
In a February 2002 study, Petrella and colleagues gave 120 patients one of four treatments: 1) hyaluronate sodium injections (10 mg/mL, one per week for three weeks) and placebo (100 mg of lactose); 2) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and hyaluronate sodium injections; 3) NSAIDs and placebo injections (saline solution); and 4) placebo (lactose pills and saline injections).
The gel contains rice extracts and hyaluronate sodium
which combine to help moisturise and soften.
In this study, 120 patients were randomly divided into four groups, each receiving a pill (either non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) or placebo) and an injection (either hyaluronate sodium or saline placebo).
In fact, the journal's editors saw no evidence to suggest that the hyaluronate sodium injections were superior to placebo.
Each patient received both 3 weekly intra-articular knee injections of either placebo or hyaluronate sodium
and 12 weeks of twice daily placebo or diclofenac 75 mg plus misoprostol 200 [micro]g.
