Lubravisc is a viscoelastic solution designed for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee joint.
Osteoarthritis is one of the most commonly occurring joint diseases, involving a change in the cartilage of the joints, which causes the surface to become matt and uneven. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in high concentrations in joint cartilage and in joint fluid, where it protects and lubricates the knee joint. The quality of hyaluronic acid falls as we get older, and after long-term severe stress, which may lead to pain and discomfort. Lubravisc replaces the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in joint fluid and so acts as a painkiller and lubricant.
