Next Generation Osteoarthritis Treatment
HYALSTERO® is a unique single-injection treatment proven to safely and effectively treat the pain and certain symptoms associated with osteoarthritis (OA). HYALSTERO® combines two well-established treatments in a single injection, providing the beneﬁts of both an approved corticosteroid and a proprietary high concentration cross-linked hyaluronic acid formulation. HYALSTERO® is a simple treatment performed by a health care professional during an in-ofﬁce visit.
The corticosteroid reduces inﬂammation in the joint, providing rapid pain relief within days of injection, while the hyaluronic acid component works in parallel to deliver long lasting pain relief proven to last through 6 months.
Joints affected by osteoarthritis typically have lower concentrations of hyaluronic acid in the synovial ﬂuid, the thick liquid that helps cushion and lubricate the joint. As a result, the synovial ﬂuid in osteoarthritic joints has lower viscosity and elasticity than healthy synovial ﬂuid, decreasing its ability to lubricate the joint and absorb shocks. Viscosupplements are hyaluronic acid (HA)-based products designed to supplement the body’s natural HA, providing signiﬁcant long term pain relief from the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
