More often than not, patients who are suffering from degenerative joint disorders opt for pharmaceutical therapy, such as over-the-counter painkillers and prescribed analgesics. However, these medications only suppress pain and inflammation. Some patients also choose other disease managing methods like physical therapy and rehabilitation accessories. While these methods alleviate uncomfortable symptoms of joint diseases, joint health may still remain compromised. Viscosupplementation is the next-level strategy in treating osteoarthritis and has garnered a lot of attention in the medical industry. Durolane is a single-injection treatment that replenishes the fluid within the joint to improve its functionality and health. This brand is marketed to more than 25 countries worldwide.

 

How long has it been on the market?

This brand has been a leading joint pain reliever for more than 15 years due to its excellent quality, performance and safety profile. In fact, it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lubricating arthritic joints safely.

 

How does it work effectively?

There are 3 types of joints in the human body: fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial joints. Synovial joint is 1 of the most flexible joints due to the presence of synovial fluid and articular cartilage. The ends of bones encased within a synovial joint are protected by a layer of self-lubricating articular cartilage that constantly secretes synovial fluid into the joint space. Under normal and healthy circumstances, synovial joints are capable of moving without pain, and absorbing sudden impact.

Unfortunately, constant wear-and-tear disintegrates articular cartilage, ultimately depleting the lubricating synovial fluid. In addition, the bones are left exposed to grind against each other. So, patients suffer from excruciating pain and reduced mobility. Durolane is created with viscoelastic NASHA to mimic the actions of synovial fluid. Once implanted, the gel protects the bones from painful friction. Movements also become smoother with enhanced ability to absorb impact. Viscosupplement ensures that joint health is improved tremendously for a short period of time.

 

What are the active ingredients that make the brand unique?

This orthopedic injectable is made of NASHA. Hyaluronic acid molecules are extracted and purified from a regulated bacterial fermentation process. Extensive purification process ensures removal of any harmful endotoxins and contaminants. Highly purified hyaluronic acid gel is then stabilized by introducing strong covalent bonds between and within the molecules. The final product is very viscoelastic.

 

Why is it different from other brands?

Durolane surpasses other intra-articular implant as it is made of pure synthetic hyaluronic acid. The risk of immunogenic reactions is definitely much lower when compared to animal-based viscosupplement.

 

What skin type is it suitable for?

This orthopedic injectable gel is intended to improve the health of synovial joints (e.g. knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, etc.) affected by osteoarthritis.

 

What are some of the side effects?

Patients may experience some unpleasant reactions following the completion of the treatment session.

Common side effects:

  • Temporary pain at the treated site
  • Temporary swelling at the treated site
  • Stiffness at the treated site

The reactions above typically last for about a week. Patients may be prescribed painkillers to ease pain and discomfort during the recovery period.

Rare side effects:

  • There have been no reported adverse effects.

 

Have your patient report any persistent side effects, or any serious reactions, to you immediately.

Why should you choose Durolane?

This orthopedic injectable is made of NASHA and has an extremely effective lubricating performance. Following implantation, the gel protects synovial joints from further damage and patients can enjoy from pain-free mobility.
