How does this product work?
Osteoarthritis is a chronic condition that becomes progressively worse with age. It involves the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, which allows the bones in the joint to rub together painfully as the patient moves. This is complemented by decreasing quality of the synovial fluid, a substance that naturally lubricates and cushions the joints. Together, these issues lead to inflammation, pain, and other osteoarthritis symptoms.
When you inject Monovisc directly into the knee joint, its hyaluronan content replaces the synovial fluid, providing effective hydration and support to the joint. After a Monovisc injection, the bones in the joint are prevented from rubbing against each other, stopping inflammation and pain in their tracks.
What are the ingredients?
Monovisc is comprised of 22mg/ml of cross-linked sodium hyaluronate.
How to inject/administer this product
Monovisc is administered via intra-articular injection into the selected joint space using an 18-21G needle. Only health9care professionals trained in appropriate injection techniques should carry out treatment with Monovisc. Aseptic guidelines should be closely followed during this treatment process.
When should I use this product?
Monovisc is designed to work with 1 injection, rather than multiple weekly injections. This means that after their first Monovisc injection, patients should experience relief from their osteoarthritis symptoms for up to 6 months. At this time, you can administer another Monovisc injection to your patient's joint if desired to provide another 6 months of relief. While some of your patients may get immediate relief from their Monovisc injection, this treatment may take longer to become effective in others.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for this product?
Monovisc can help patients who have osteoarthritis in their knee joints, whether it was caused by aging, injury, overuse, or excess strain on the joint from obesity. Health-care practitioners usually treat patients with Monovisc injections after other treatments, including exercise, physiotherapy, and painkiller drugs, have become less effective. You can use Monovisc injections to replace or to supplement other osteoarthritis treatments to help your patients feel less pain and discomfort from their condition.
Why should I purchase this product?
When other osteoarthritis treatments, like painkillers, exercise, and physiotherapy, are no longer as effective, surgery is often the next step. However, you can purchase Monovisc to help your patients delay their knee surgery, providing lubrication and cushioning that makes their joints feel better. Monovisc works on its own or in combination with other osteoarthritis therapies to help manage chronic osteoarthritis. Order wholesale Monovisc from Medica Depot to offer viscosupplement injections in your clinic.
Are there any side effects?
The most common Monovisc side effects are joint swelling, effusion, and pain, as well as injection site pain. Monovisc is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronan or gram-positive bacterial proteins, patients with known systemic bleeding disorders, and patients with an infection or skin disease near the injection site. Since the hyaluronan in Monovisc comes from bacterial fermentation and not from rooster combs, it is safe to use on your patients who are allergic to birds, eggs, and feathers without causing an allergic reaction.
