MONOVISC® High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan
MONOVISC® High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan is an FDA approved treatment made from ultra-pure hyaluronan, a naturally occurring lubricant found in healthy knee joints. MONOVISC® is a non-avian sourced viscosupplement that provides early and durable pain relief in a single high concentration injection that is conveniently packaged in a 4 mL volume for ease of use by physicians and minimum injection discomfort for patients.1
As OA of the knee progresses, prescription medications such as NSAIDs, COX-2 Inhibitors and intraarticular corticosteroid injections may be appropriate next course of therapy choices. Due to contraindications, co-morbidities or adverse events, COX-2 Inhibitors and/or NSAIDs may or may not be an appropriate choice.
These treatments may have provided relief to date but may no longer seem effective due to the disease state progression. A next-step consideration in the Continuum of Care for Knee Osteoarthritis is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Injections, such as MONOVISC®.
Features & Benefits
High HA (Hyaluronic Acid) Concentration
