Based on drug class, the global osteoarthritis drugs market has been segmented into corticosteroids, NSAIDs & others, and viscosupplementation
Global Orthopedic Joint Reconstruction Market By Product (Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM), Allograft, Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP), Viscosupplementation
Products, Synthetic Bone Substitutes, Others), Type (Knee, Ankle, Hip, Wrist & Shoulder, Spine, Others), Application (Osteoarthritis & Degenerative Arthritis, Spinal Fusion, Fracture Recovery, Soft Tissue Injuries, Maxillofacial & Dental Applications), End User (Hospitals & Ambulatory Centers, Research & Academic Institute), Geography (North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa) - Industry Trends & Forecast to 2026
This led to introduction of viscosupplementation
(VS) therapy, which is the intra-articular (IA) injection of hyaluronic acid (HA) or its derivatives in an attempt to enhance the elasticity and thickness of the synovial fluid.
The aim of our study was to investigate the efficacy and synovial changes with viscosupplementation
therapy in treating hemophilic arthropathy of the knee.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Intra-articular Knee Injections Show No Superiority Versus Viscosupplementation
: A Randomized Controlled
Treatment of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis with viscosupplementation
and arthrocentesis on rabbit model.
It has been used as a viscosupplementation
and anti-inflammatory agent in joint diseases (LIPOWITZ, 1985; OZAYDIN & KOC, 1993).
Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC) shows no change in cartilage structural composition after viscosupplementation
in patients with early-stage knee osteoarthritis.
Q Can viscosupplementation
be used for other arthritic joints besides the knee?
Exclusion criteria also included radiologically confirmed OA in the ankle or hip joints, intra-articular corticosteroid or viscosupplementation
injection to either knee joint within 3 months of study participation, or any musculoskeletal or neurological impairment, dermatological or circulatory problems in the lower extremities that might affect ambulation.
(VS) is a minimally invasive technique that involves replacement of synovial fluid by intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid (HA) which restores its concentration and molecular weight in joint cavity .
