What is Synvisc One
Synvisc One is an osteoarthritis treatment that contains hylan, a natural found in the synovial fluid of the joints. When injected directly into the joints, Synvisc One acts as a replacement for synovial fluid. The therapeutic effect of this treatment is achieved through viscosupplementation, a process in which the rheological and physiological state of arthritic joint tissues are reestablished. This increases mobility of the joint through decreased pain and inflammation.

What are the benefits of this product?
Synvisc One is an effective viscosupplement that replenishes the knee joint with a substance that mimics healthy synovial fluid. This restores the cushioning and shock-absorbing effects that have been lost with the development of knee osteoarthritis, thus providing pain relief to the patient. This particular treatment combines the conventional 3 Synvisc injection doses into 1 single dose, negating the need for multiple visits to the doctor for treatment.
How does this product work?
As your patient ages, their body begins to lose its natural hyaluronic acid content, a substance found in the synovial fluid of the joints. This greatly decreases the joints’ lubrication and cushioning, causing the bones in the joints to rub together as they move. This causes intense pain and inflammation, a condition known as osteoarthritis. Synvisc One may be used to help reverse this problem: when injected into your patient's knee, lost synovial fluid is replaced, lubricating the joints, so they can function optimally. With this, inflammation and pain are both reduced, allowing your patients to regain comfort.
What are the ingredients?
Synvisc One contains hylan (8mg/ml), sodium chloride (8.5mg/ml), disodium hydrogen phosphate (0.16mg/ml), and sodium dihydrogen phosphate hydrate (0.04mg/ml).
How to inject/administer this product
Synvisc One is intended for intra-articular injection into the affected joint by a licensed physician. Inject the product into the synovial space using an 18–20G needle and proper aseptic techniques. For more information on the injection process, consult the included product pamphlet.
When should I use this product?
Synvisc One is a single dose treatment and is administered as 1-6ml injection into the knee. The injection may be repeated 6 months after the first injection, if justified by the patient's symptoms.
What areas can I treat with this product?
Synvisc One is solely indicated to treat pain stemming from osteoarthritis of the knee.
How long do results last?
Synvisc One is unique compared to other hyaluronic acid-based osteoarthritis treatments, because it takes just 1 Synvisc One injection to provide pain relief. It is also available in 2ml syringes, usually administering 3 injections into the knee joint, so you can tailor the treatment. Many patients experienced pain relief 1 month after their Synvisc One injection, although this may vary from person to person. Most patients will continue to experience osteoarthritis relief for about 6 months after their Synvisc One injection. As such, patients should return twice a year for additional treatments to continue living their active, pain-free lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for this product?
Patients often turn to hyaluronic acid injections when other osteoarthritis treatments, such as anti-inflammatory and pain medications or physical therapy, no longer give them the relief they need. Other patients use Synvisc One injections to supplement their other osteoarthritis therapies, or to delay painful and invasive knee surgeries. With this, this injection allows a wide variety of osteoarthritis patients to live more active lives with less pain.
Why should I purchase this product?
There are various injectable solutions on the market used to relieve osteoarthritis pain that are made with hyaluronic acid. However, most of these hyaluronic acid solutions require patients to return for 3–5 treatments before relief is experienced. Synvisc One works with just 1 injection, allowing them to enjoy relief from osteoarthritis symptoms for about 6 months. Synvisc One saves your patients the time and hassle of coming into your clinic for weekly injections.
Are there any side effects?
Some side effects of Synvisc One could include swelling, redness, bruising, pain, a feeling of heat, or fluid buildup in your patient's joint. Your patient may also experience a headache after Synvisc One injections. Generally, though, these side effects are mild and temporary. Synvisc One is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance similar to that naturally in your patient's synovial fluid. However, it is sourced from rooster combs, meaning that patients who are allergic to eggs or birds should refrain from using this product.
