Euflexxa is a sterile, transparent viscoelastic gel that brings long-lasting relief to osteoarthritis-affected knee joints. Aging individuals who constantly perform rigorous physical activities or lifts excess weight have higher chances of damaging their cartilage and losing their synovial fluid, triggering the onset of osteoarthritis. Help them recover from this loss by administering this non-avian sourced hyaluronate solution into the joint to add extra lubrication. Not only does it restore mobility and flexibility to the troubled joint, but also, it reduces pain and delays the need for reconstructive surgery. With clinically proven safety and efficacy, you can trust this viscosupplement to improve your patient’s quality of life after just 3 injections.
This formula contains sodium hyaluronate (10mg/mL), water for injections, sodium chloride, sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate, and disodium hydrogen phosphate dodecahydrate.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that happens when the cartilage, or the cushioning tissue of the knees, begins to wear down due to age, excess physical activity or pressure from excess weight. With this, the synovial fluid, which is responsible for lubricating the knee joint, becomes thinner and loses its ability to protect the surrounding bone. This causes the knee to become stiff and painful.
Hyaluronic acid makes up a large part of the synovial fluid. Although it is naturally found in the body, its concentration gradually decreases with age. This loss of hyaluronic acid contributes to the lost of synovial fluid’s integrity.
As a gel, the high molecular weight (2.4–3.6 million daltons) sodium hyaluronate in this phosphate-buffered saline implant can replenish the lost hyaluronic acid. This highly purified biofermented compound is also biocompatible and non-carcinogenic, which means it will not cause mutagenic reactions or rejection. The safe integration of the thick, slippery gel into the body delivers quick support and relief to the affected joint, as it replaces the lost synovial fluid. It provides extra padding in between the affected bones, which will reduce the occurrence of any painful, abrasive friction. Clearly, this solution will enhance your patient’s quality of life.
Other ingredients in this formula help to ensure that the hyaluronate acid remains in its most optimal and sterile form.
How Do I Apply Euflexxa?
Identify the synovial space at the affected area. Using a 17–21G range needle for injection, remove any joint effusion at the area. Administer a dose of 2ml of Euflexxa into the affected knee and follow strict aseptic techniques. Then, safely dispose of all needles and remaining product.
Repeat this procedure for a total of 3 injections at weekly intervals to achieve the maximum benefit.
When Do I Apply Euflexxa?
Suggest this treatment to patients aged 45 and above whom are experiencing osteoarthritis symptoms, such as pain and stiffness in moving or articulating their knees. The implant’s biocompatibility will help to reduce their pain using a substance that is natural to the body, thus ensuring a safe procedure. This viscosupplement is FDA-approved.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
For the first course of treatment, administer 3 injections of Euflexxa at weekly intervals. Complete this course to earn the maximum benefits of this treatment. If the patient showcases positive results and wishes to continue with this therapy, schedule subsequent treatments every 6 months.
How Long Does Euflexxa Last?
Clinical evidence suggests that Euflexxa may provide lasting pain relief for last up to 6 months.
