Viscoseal characteristics

 

Viscoseal is isotonic solution of hyaluronan with a physiological pH value.

It is a synovial fluid substitute indicated for the relief of pain, improvement of mobility and promotion of joint recovery following arthroscopic procedures or joint lavage.

The concentration of hyaluronan in Viscoseal is 0.5% - similar to that in synovial fluid.

 

The hyaluronan in Viscoseal is produced using bacterial fermentation and is highly purified. It is devoid of animal proteins and therefore has negligible allergenic potential.

 

Viscoseal is presented in a 10 ml monodose container equipped with a luer tip and packaged in a sealed sachet. Both the container and the sachet are sterilised using moist heat.

Viscoseal is a CE-marked medical device. (CE 0123)
