Synvisc One 6ml
Synvisc One 6ml. Used to relieve the pain caused by osteoarthritis in the knee joint, when other pain relievers have not adequately controlled the pain. It works by mimicking the body’s own synovial fluid (a fluid that lubricates and cushions the joints). Relief from pain can last up to 6 months.
Some allergic reactions, some which can be potentially severe, have been reported during the use of this product. Should however not be used in patients with an infected knee joint, skin disease or infection around the area where the injection will be given, and should be used with caution when there is swelling of the legs due to problems with venous stasis or lymphatic drainage.
