WHAT IS THE EUFLEXXA ?
EUFLEXXA is a gel-like, elastic, sterile product containing natural, highly purified hyaluronan (pronounced hye-a-loo-ROE-nan). Hyaluronan is a
natural substance found in the body. It is present in particularly high amounts in joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joints. The body’s own hyaluronan
acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint. It is needed for the joint to function properly.
WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
EUFLEXXA is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis (pronounced Os-tee-oh-are-THRY-tis). It is used for patients who do not get enough relief
from simple pain medications such as acetaminophen or from exercise and physical therapy. Osteoarthritis is a condition that involves the wearing down of cartilage (the protective covering on the ends of your bones). In osteoarthritis, there may not be enough or a decrease in the quality of the gel-like substance in the joint and surrounding tissues.
