If you experience knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, and are not ready for surgery, hyaluronic acid injections may provide you with some relief. ORTHOVISC® is a registered trademark of and is manufactured by Anika Therapeutics.
ORTHOVISC High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan is indicated in the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy and to simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen. In clinical studies, the most commonly reported adverse events were arthralgia, back pain, and headache. Other side effects included local injection site adverse events. ORTHOVISC is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to hyaluronate formulations or known hypersensitivity (allergy) to gram positive bacterial proteins. ORTHOVISC should not be injected in patients with infections or skin diseases in the area of the injection site.
