Euflexxa is used to relieve joint pain caused by osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, shoulder and ankle.
It is an injectable synthetic version of hyaluronan, the key ingredient of synovial fluid found naturally in the joint space. With osteoarthritis, the normal synovial fluid becomes dysfunctional, leading to friction and inflammation. By lubricating the joint, Euflexxa may reduce pain and reinstate joint flexibility and mobility, thereby enhancing the overall quality of life for patients.
What is involved?
Euflexxa treatment is administered over three appointments, 2 weeks apart. At each appointment the patient will receive a CT guided injection of Euflexxa in a sterile environment, into the affected joint.
Patients typically see greatest results on completion of the 3 injections, with benefits lasting up to 6 months. If required, the treatment can be performed twice a year.
Who should not have a EUFLEXXA injection?
- Anyone who has had a previous allergic reaction to Euflexxa or hyaluronan products.
- Anyone who has a joint infection, skin diseases or infections around the injection site.
