HYALGAN® Italian 5 syringes
What is Hyalgan?
Hyalgan is used to treat osteoarthritis of the knee in patients who do not respond adequately to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy or simple analgesics. Hyalgan contains hyaluronate, a substance naturally found in the synovial fluid that lubricates and cushions the knee joint. When injected into in the knee, it helps to relieve pain by supporting the joint and preventing wear and tear. Hyalgan injections can be used in addition to prescription pain relievers.

What are the benefits of this product?

How does this product work?
Osteoarthritis is characterized by pain and stiffness in the joints and worsens with age. These symptoms are attributed to a loss of healthy synovial fluid in the joint. Hyalgan has similar rheological properties to synovial fluid. As such, its injection into arthritic joints provides lubrication and shock absorption. After treatment, patients should experience increased mobility and decreased pain.
What are the ingredients?
Hyalgan is comprised of 10mg/ml of sodium hyaluronate.
How to inject/administer this product
Disinfect the treatment area prior to injection. Hyalgan is administered via intra-articular injection into the knee joint using a 20-gauge needle. This procedure may only be performed by a licensed medical practitioner. Observe strict aseptic technique throughout the injection process.
When should I use this product?
You should inject Hyalgan into your patient's arthritic joint once a week for 3–5 weeks. Most of your patients may notice a difference about 1 week after their third injection, although some patients may need to wait until after 5 injections for true pain relief. Your patients should continue to experience pain relief in their joint until around 6 months after their Hyalgan injection. Most of your patients should return about twice a year for Hyalgan injections, but you can determine what is best for each individual patient.

Doctors use Hyalgan to treat osteoarthritis in the knee. However, doctors also use Hyalgan in other joints affected by osteoarthritis.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for this product?
When a patient is diagnosed with osteoarthritis, their physician's first response is often to put them on anti-inflammatory drugs, offer them pain medication, or send them for physical therapy. However, these osteoarthritis treatments may stop working after a while—plus, they may not work at all for some patients. Hyalgan is a great choice for patients that need a replacement for their drug therapy, or that want to supplement their current therapy with another form of treatment for maximum results. You can even use Hyalgan to treat your patients that prefer to avoid using any medication for their arthritis. Hyalgan can help your patients cut down on medications, reducing the chances for possible drug interactions. Please note that this viscosupplement should not be administered to patients with a known allergy to hyaluronate preparations.
Why should I purchase this product?
For patients suffering from osteoarthritis, this viscosupplement offers pain relief beyond what medication or physical therapy can. If you are a doctor, licensed medical practitioner, clinic, or hospital, you can purchase wholesale Hyalgan online from MedicaDepot.com. For personalized service, you can also order Hyalgan by phone from our friendly customer service team. Give your patients the pain-free motion and function they need with this orthopedic injectable.
Are there any side effects?
Hyalgan is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found within your patient's body. As such, serious allergic reactions to this treatment are rare. However, your patients might experience some mild injection-related side effects, such as pain, swelling, and redness. Additionally, they may experience warmth within their affected joint, as well as headache, bruising, itching, or a rash at their injection site. These common side effects generally resolve on their own within a few days after treatment. Should your patient experience unusual or prolonged reactions, they should seek medical attention.
