For several years, VR Medical is proud to offer a complete range of products for intra-articular injection based upon of hyaluronic acid (HA). This molecule is a high-molecular weight glycosaminoglycan that consists of a repeating sequence of disaccharide units composed of N-acetyl glucosamine and glucuronic acid. It is produced by type B synoviocytes and synovial fibroblasts and is secreted into the joint, where it serves as a lubricant, shock absorber and chondroprotective milieu, to facilitate chondrocyte nutrition and to curb inflammation.
