Suplasyn is a fast and long lasting, non-animal origin treatment of osteoarthritis. The substance of Suplasyn is hyaluronic acid (HA) with a high molecular. The injection is shown to be beneficial for patients with osteoarthritis, it treats the pain while improving the physical function of the joints (e.g. hip, ankle, thumb, knee). Do not inject Suplasyn in patients with hypersensitivity reactions.
Hyaluronic acid is a normal component in the synovial tissue and it plays a fundamental role in maintaining the physiological environment of the joints.
In cases of osteoarthritis, the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in the synovial fluid is reduced. This loss affects the viscosity and elasticity properties in the joint causing irritation, inflammation, pain and stiffness.
Suplasyn is used as a supplement to the hyaluronic acid in the synovial space. When Syplasyn is injected into the affected joint, it adds hyaluronic acid (HA) which acts as a lubricant and pain reliever.
