PurposeThis study aimed to identify patient and treatment factors that predict a favourable response to intra-articular hyaluronic acid (HA) treatment to better guide patient and treatment selection.MethodsThis prospective, observational study evaluated patients with mild-to-moderate (Kellgren–Lawrence grades 1–3) primary knee osteoarthritis treated between March 2013 and May 2016. Patient function and pain scores were assessed by the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index… Expand
Intra-articular botulinum toxin type A for treatment of knee osteoarthritis: Clinical trial.
TLDR
Botulinum neurotoxin type A is an effective and safe initial treatment of knee osteoarthritis with clear clinical advantages and patients' satisfaction, minimum adverse effects in addition to single-dose prescription make the toxin as a choice for the first-line therapy of osteoartritis at least at the short-term in elderly people.

Comparison of intra-articular hyaluronic acid and methylprednisolone for pain management in knee osteoarthritis: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
Both HA and methylprednisolone injections were effective therapies for patients with knee OA and no significant difference was found in long-term of follow-up in terms of adverse effects. Expand
Evidence on ankle injections for osteochondral lesions and osteoarthritis: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis supports the safety and effectiveness of intra-articular treatment for ankle OA and OLT, while only a very low evidence supports the efficacy of HA in terms of better results versus placebo for the treatment of ankle Oa, and other conclusions are hindered by the scarcity of the available literature. Expand
Intra-articular hyaluronic acids for osteoarthritis of the knee
TLDR
HAs provide pain relief for patients with mild-to-moderate knee OA without adversely affecting patients with comorbidities, and with 15 HA preparations available, these agents vary according to origin of derivation, molecular weight, number of injections per series, and duration of effect. Expand
Depression negatively affects patient-reported knee functional outcome after intraarticular hyaluronic acid injection among geriatric patients with knee osteoarthritis
TLDR
It is found that depression negatively affected patient-reported knee function among geriatric OA patients who had undergone IAHA, and further attention should be paid to the depressive status of this population. Expand
Prevention of post-traumatic osteoarthritis after intra-articular knee fractures using hyaluronic acid: a randomized prospective pilot study
TLDR
Preliminary results support a direct role for hyaluronic acid in the acute phase of the inflammatory process that follows articular injury and provides initial evidence for the efficacy of IA HA. Expand
Single- and double-dose of platelet-rich plasma versus hyaluronic acid for treatment of knee osteoarthritis: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
PRP is a safe and efficient therapeutic option for treatment of knee osteoarthritis and the efficacy of PRP increases after multiple injections, and is demonstrated to be significantly better than hyaluronic acid. Expand
Safety of a single intra-articular injection of LBSA0103 hyaluronic acid in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee: a multicenter, single-arm, prospective, cohort study
TLDR
A single intra-articular injection of LBSA0103 in patients with OA of the knee joint was safe, and no significant safety concerns were observed, suggesting LBSA 0103 could be safely applied as an intra-artsicular injection for management of knee OA. Expand

Intra-articular hyaluronic acid in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee: clinical and morphological study.
TLDR
Hyalgan represents a useful therapy for knee OA, with long-lasting symptomatic efficacy and potential positive effects on joint tissues, according to a pilot, open clinical trial on 40 patients with knee osteoarthritis. Expand
Hyaluronic Acid Injections in Medicare Knee Osteoarthritis Patients Are Associated With Longer Time to Knee Arthroplasty.
TLDR
In a large cohort of elderly patients undergoing KA, there was a significant longer time from diagnosis of OA to KA in those receiving IA HA, and it is unclear if the extended time may lead to less KA utilization. Expand
Hyaluronic Acid Injections for Treatment of Advanced Osteoarthritis of the Knee: Utilization and Cost in a National Population Sample.
TLDR
Considering the paucity of data supporting the effectiveness of HA injections and the current cost-conscious health-care climate, decreasing their use among patients with end-stage knee osteoarthritis may represent a substantial cost reduction that likely does not adversely impact the quality of care.

Analysis for Prognostic Factors from a Database for the Intra-Articular Hyaluronic Acid (Euflexxa) Treatment for Osteoarthritis of the Knee
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IA-HA for knee OA was of greater benefit in those with less severe radiographic changes, however, those with moresevere radiographic change often had a better response with the second course of IA- HA. Expand
Viscosupplementation for Osteoarthritis of the Knee: A Systematic Review of the Evidence.
TLDR
The most consistent finding was that double-blinded, sham-controlled trials had much smaller treatment effects than trials that were not sufficiently blinded (p < 0.05), and the overall effect was greater but was biased toward stronger treatment effects because of the influence of nonblinded or improperly blinded trials.

AMSSM scientific statement concerning viscosupplementation injections for knee osteoarthritis: importance for individual patient outcomes
TLDR
A network meta-analysis of the relevant literature to determine if there is a benefit from HA as compared with IAS and IAP found those participants receiving HA were 15% and 11% more likely to respond to treatment by OMERACT-OARSI criteria than those receiving IAS or IAP, respectively. Expand

Background: Osteoarthritis of the knee affects up to 10% of the elderly population. The condition is frequently treated by intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid. We performed a systematicExpand
Viscosupplementation for Osteoarthritis of the Knee
TLDR
In patients with knee osteoarthritis, viscosupplementation is associated with a small and clinically irrelevant benefit and an increased risk for serious adverse events. Expand
