Euflexxa (3x2ml) USA
Euflexxa (3x2ml), is prescribed for patients with osteoarthritis for the treatment of knee pain and inflammation. EUFLEXXA is used in patients with osteoarthritis who have already tried non-pharmacological treatments such as diet, exercise and pharmacological therapies, such as pain medication, but they do not show any notable results.
The knee is protected from injuries and strokes due to the presence of synovial fluid in the knee joints. Synovial fluid acts as a lubricant and cushion with viscous and rheological properties due to the presence of sodium hyaluronate. With the loss of synovial fluid, protection is lost, and this leads to knee osteoarthritis and pain. EUFLEXXA synovial fluid provides relief from knee pain for up to six months.
A synovial fluid that is viscoelastic due to the presence of hyaluronic acid is found in all synovial joints, particularly in heavy load bearing joints, where it provides normal painless movement due to its lubricating and damping properties. It is also responsible for cartilage operating.
