Monovisc Osteoarthritis Knee Pain Treatment Injection Prefilled Syringes 88mg/4mL
Monovisc (Sodium Hyaluronate) Osteoarthritis Knee Pain Treatment Injection Prefilled Syringes (high molecular weight hyaluronan injection) is a complex sugar used to treat pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy or simple analgesics (e.g., acetaminophen).
Monovisc is a viscous (thick) sterile mixture made from highly purified hyaluronan from bacterial fermentation. Hyaluronan is a natural chemical found in the body. High amounts of hyaluronan are found in the joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joints.
Monovisc™ is injected into the knee joint and is administered as a single intra-articular injection. Standard intra-articular injection site preparation and precautions should be used. Strict aseptic administration technique must be followed.
Directions For Use:
- Using an 18 – 20 gauge needle, remove synovial fluid or effusion before injecting Monovisc™. Do not use the same syringe for removing synovial fluid and for injecting Monovisc™; however, the same 18 – 20 gauge needle should be used.
- Remove the protective rubber cap on the tip of the syringe and securely attach a small gauge needle (18 - 20 gauge) to the tip. Twist the tip cap before pulling it off, as this will minimize product leakage.
- To ensure a tight seal and prevent leakage during administration, secure the needle tightly while firmly holding the luer hub. Do not over tighten or apply excessive leverage when attaching the needle or removing the needle guard, as this may break the syringe tip.
- Inject the full 4 mL in one knee only (do not overfill the joint). If treatment is bilateral, a separate syringe should be used for each knee.
