IntroductionOsteoarthritis (OA) constitutes a growing public health burden and the most common cause of disability in the United States. Non-pharmacologic modalities and conservative pharmacologic therapies are recommended for the initial treatment of OA, including acetaminophen, and topical and oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. However, safety concerns continue to mount regarding the use of these treatments and none have been shown to impact disease progression. Viscosupplementation… 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
[Budget impact analysis of viscosupplementation for non-surgical treatment of knee osteoarthritis].
TLDR
The budget impact of the association of this drug and non-surgical treatment (standard treatment) from the perspective of the Brazilian Unified National Health System is estimated to assist administrators in the best use of resources and thus in decision-making on the technology's incorporation. Expand
Minimally invasive therapies of knee osteoarthritis
TLDR
Mesenchymal stem cells injection is a promising regenerative treatment which has shown positive results in two recent randomized controlled trials, and it was considered as effective as hyaluronic acid. Expand
Effectiveness of Sequential Viscosupplementation in Temporomandibular Joint Internal Derangements and Symptomatology: A Case Series
TLDR
This viscosupplementation protocol reduced pain and symptoms associated with internal derangement of temporomandibular joint, improved quality of life, and showed benefits from both low and medium molecular weight HA in alternate cycles. Expand
Efficacy of Intra-Articular Hyaluronic Acid and Cortisone Compared to Cortisone alone for Symptomatic Hip Osteoarthritis
TLDR
This is the first study to evaluate the efficacy of a combination injection of intra-articular hyaluronic acid and cortisone in hip OA and there was a significant difference in the duration of pain relief with the combination providing more than 3 additional months of relief. Expand
Use of Saline as a Placebo in Intra-articular Injections in Osteoarthritis: Potential Contributions to Nociceptive Pain Relief
TLDR
Since the effect of saline injection is always greater than no treatment, the evaluations of these treatments can be confounded in clinical trials, therefore, the question of whether there are known therapeutic effects of saline injections might explain these results. Expand
Use of viscosupplementation for the recovery of active football players complaining of knee pain
TLDR
The use of a medium-molecular weight hyaluronic acid in football players affected by knee osteoarthritis seems efficacious and safe and resulted in a stable improvement of symptoms; moreover, it allowed a rapid restart of sports activity. Expand
Regenerative Therapy in Osteoarthritis of Knee
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder in the world. It commonly affects the knee and current treatment options are limited, focusing mainly on symptom relief. It is now known that OAExpand
Ultrasound-Guided Injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma and Hyaluronic Acid, Separately and in Combination, for Hip Osteoarthritis
TLDR
Results indicated that intra-articular PRP injections offer a significant clinical improvement in patients with hip OA without relevant side effects and the benefit was significantly more stable up to 12 months as compared with the other tested treatments. Expand
Efficacy of single-dose hyaluronic acid products with two different structures in patients with early-stage knee osteoarthritis
TLDR
There were no difference in Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index and Visual Analog Scale scores in patients with knee osteoarth arthritis injected with two different hyaluronic acid structures in short-term preparations. Expand

Viscosupplementation for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee.
TLDR
The pooled analyses of the effects of viscosupplementation against 'placebo' controls generally supported the efficacy of this class of intervention and readers should be cautious, therefore, in drawing conclusions regarding the relative value of different products. Expand

  • Current medical research and opinion
  • 2003
TLDR
Relief of OA knee pain with hylan G-F 20 far outweighs the low risk of local AEs for patients who do not respond to other therapies indicated for the treatment of OAknee pain. Expand
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
Efficacy of Hylan G-F 20 versus 6-methylprednisolone acetate in painful shoulder osteoarthritis: a retrospective controlled trial
TLDR
Intra-articular injections with Hylan G-F 20 are effective in reducing pain for up to 6 months in gleno-humeral osteoarthritis whereas corticosteroids injections resulte in improvement at 1 month only, whereas in patients with severe osteaarthritis and/or full-thickness, RC tears results tended to be worse. Expand
Adding Triamcinolone Improves Viscosupplementation: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
The addition of triamcinolone hexacetonide improves first-week symptom and functional scores of viscosupplementation, but not beyond, and does not seem to increase the likelihood of adverse effects. Expand
Tramadol for osteoarthritis.
TLDR
The analgesic effectiveness, the effect on physical function, the duration of benefit and the safety of oral tramadol in people with osteoarthritis are sought, and fixed-effect models were used for the meta-analyses as the results across studies were similar. Expand
Viscosupplementation with hylan for the treatment of osteoarthritis: findings from clinical practice in Canada.
TLDR
Hylan G-F 20 provided good clinical benefits and an acceptable safety profile in current clinical practice and the occurrence of adverse events after an intraarticular hylan injection is infrequent and unpredictable and is not necessarily hylan related, although injection related. Expand
Viscosupplementation of osteoarthritic knees with hylan: A treatment schedule study
TLDR
The results suggest that hylan is an extremely effective and safe viscosupplementation therapy for the management of degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee and results can be maximized using a treatment schedule of three hylan injections administered at 1-week intervals. Expand
Therapeutic trajectory of hyaluronic acid versus corticosteroids in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
From baseline to week 4, intraarticular corticosteroids appear to be relatively more effective for pain than intraartic hyaluronic acid, but beyond week 8, hyaluonic acid has greater efficacy. Expand
Hyaluronic Acid in the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis
TLDR
Comparing the different HA products, which vary in the molecular weight, concentration, and volume of HA, it was not able to conclude that one brand has a better efficacy than another due to the heterogeneity of the studies and outcomes. Expand
