What are the benefits of this product?
Crespine Gel+ is a viscosupplement injectable containing both crosslinked and non-crosslinked sodium hyaluronate from a non-animal origin. This intra-articular implant is a highly pure, viscous gel that can help lubricate and cushion joints affected by osteoarthritis. The gel also contains prilocaine, an anesthetic that helps make treatment more comfortable.
How does this product work?
Crespine Gel+ is a viscous gel, similar to the synovial fluid found naturally in joints. The gel forms a layer on the surface of the cartilage, helping to lubricate the joint and cushion the joint with movement. This helps reduce the painful grinding of cartilage within the joint, helping reduce osteoarthritis pain and making movement easier for the patient. The prilocaine within the gel is an anesthetic that can help relieve pain, making the injections more comfortable.
What are the ingredients?
Sodium hyaluronate, crosslinked 14.0mg; sodium hyaluronate 1.0mg; prilocaine 3.0mg.
How to inject this product
Only qualified medical professionals should administer Crespine Gel+. To use Crespine Gel+, first take a full medical history, advise your patient of precautions and possible adverse effects, and use an antiseptic to prepare the treatment area. Remove the syringe from its package, remove the cap covering the syringe tip, and attach a needle to the syringe. Before injecting the gel, minimize the chance of intravascular injection by performing aspiration first. If blood is present, reposition the needle. The absence of blood does not guarantee the injection is not into a blood vessel. Inject Crespine Gel+ intraarticularly, into the synovial cavity of the affected joint. The injection technique is important to the outcome of a Crespine Gel+ treatment. You can treat both knees and other joints, such as the hip, at the same time.
When should I use this product?
This viscosupplement is administered in a single dose, single injection treatment that takes 10–20 minutes to administer.
What areas can I treat with this product?
Crespine Gel+ is indicated for treatment of the knee, the hip, or other joints affected by osteoarthritis.
How long do results last?
The results of a Crespine Gel+ treatment, involving a single injection, usually last about 6 to 8 months, so you will likely repeat these treatments about every 8 to ten months to maintain the results. Your patients will likely start to feel pain relief about 5 to 7 days after the treatment.
