Which patients can benefit most from Durolane?
Technically, anybody adult patient can choose to have their doctor apply Durolane onto their ailing joint, but there are specific people who were kept in mind during the development of this product. In particular, this treatment is for patients who have found no success in trying non-surgical or non-injection treatments for the pain in their afflicted joint.
Areas of Durolane focus
Durolane is specifically targeted for the areas where the patient has observed osteoarthritis pain. This includes the joints in the hip, the knee, and ankles as well.
How the product works
The Durolane injection treatment is a hyaluronic acid-based formulation which gives relief to patients who suffer from osteoarthritis pain. It is a transparent, viscous, clear gel which can relieve not just mild to moderate pain, but also any swelling or stiffness found in the joints. The formulation contains biosynthetically purified hyaluronic acid, which is also already naturally found in the body’s tissue, in particular it is found in higher concentrations in the synovial fluid of the joint and skin. The solution then acts as a lubricant to ensure that no rough rubbing or contact is observed between the two bones that the joint is connected to, therefore avoiding the pain that comes with OA. Each glass syringe of Durolane contains 20mg/ml of sodium hyaluronate, which is then dissolved in phosphate buffered saline. The HA is acquired from bacterial fermentation of the streptococcus equi.
Only trained medical professionals who have the necessary training and experience in injecting products like these into the joint should apply the solution to patients. The formulation is a single intra-articular injection and the dosage should be at 3ml per joint. A topical cream or local anesthetic can be applied prior to injection to ensure the patient’s comfort, and it should also be noted that each joint should have separate syringes used on them. This product should not be injection in the synovial capsule or tissues, and neither should it be injected via extra-articular route or intravascular route.
How long will the treatment last?
As mentioned before the solution is intended as a single injection treatment per afflicted joint, and it can last for as long as 6 months. After this period has passed, it is recommended that there be additional injections depending on the doctor’s recommendation to ensure the results and comfort achieved by the product continues.
