Description

 

  • ORTHOFLEX gel is a bio- matrix in the form of a sterile ,viscoelastic solution consisting of highly purified cross linked biopolymers ,sodium hyaluronate and chondroitin sulfate and n-acetylglucosamine.

  • ORTHOFLEX gel , administered as a single injection , restores good lubrication and shock absorption in the joint , and well provide significant improvement of symptoms.

Effects

 

Sodium hyaluronate, chondroitin sulfate and N-acetylgucosmine with ORTHOFLEX gel® in the treatment of degenerative diseases of synovial joints.

 

  • The unique combination between Glucosamine, Chondroitin sulfate with hyaluronic acid can  provide a complete product   for maintaining healthy joints.

  • It provides not only special protective properties between the joints but also movement of the joints fluid itself, transport nutrients and help reduce inflammation within the joints .

  • Hyaluronic acid is major component of the synovial fluid and cartilage and thanks to its viscoelastic and rheological properties is responsible of the lubrication and cushioning in joints.it decreases friction between joint surface and protects soft tissue from trauma by acting as a shock absorber.

  • Chondroitin sulfate ,a sulfate glycosaminoglycan, is an important structural component of the extracellular cartilage matrix .The role of chondroitin sulfate is to optimize the rheological behavior of hyaluronic acid , due to specific interactions.

  • N - acetylglucosamine which has stimulatory effect on hyaluronic acid synthesis in human articular chondrocytes and synovial fibroblast inhibs nitric oxide which in  turn reduce apoptosis  in cultured human chondrocytes.

Indications

 

The treatment consists in administration of intra-articular single treatment : 

 

  • ORTHOFLEX  gel is indicated as a viscoelastic supplement or a replacement for synovial fluid in human joints .
