For joints

Sodium Hyaluronate visco-elastic injections into the joint cavity, are an exciting treatment for joint pain caused by osteoarthritis. Ostenil provides long-lasting pain relief and improves function in knee, hip and shoulders as well as the smaller joints in OA patients with excellent tolerability.  

Synovial fluid, which is viscoelastic due to the presence of hyaluronic acid, is found in all synovial joints, particularly the large weight bearing joints, where it ensures normal, painless movement due to its lubricating and shock-absorbing properties. It is also responsible for the nutrition of the cartilage.  In degenerative joint disorders such as osteoarthritis, the viscoelasticity of the synovial fluid is markedly reduced thereby decreasing its lubricating and shock-absorbing functions. This increases mechanical loading of the joint and cartilage destruction which ultimately results in pain and restricted mobility of the affected joint. Supplementing this synovial fluid with intra-articular injections of highly purified hyaluronic acid can ameliorate the visco-elastic properties of synovial fluid. This improves its lubricating and shock absorbing functions and reduces mechanical overload of the joint.  

For tendons

Ostenil® Tendon is a visco-elastic solution for peritendinous or intrasheath injection. It is for the treatment of pain and reduced mobility in tendon disorders, and can be used as a substitute for steroid with less associated side effects.

The macro-molecular characteristics of sodium hyaluronate, already proven in the effective treatment of symptomatic osteoarthritis, act to increase the gliding effect and reduce agglutinations in painful Tendinosis, the tendon is fully lubricated and thus regains its functional capacity. This prevents any localised inflammatory process from worsening.
