PDF Product Sheet OSTENIL TENDON

Composition

1 ml contains:

Sodium hyaluronate and sodium chloride 20 mg

Disodium phosphate, Sodium dihydrogen phosphate,

Mannitol and water for injections.

Characteristics

Ostenil Tendon is a transparent solution of natural and highly purified sodium hyaluronate obtained by fermentation and is devoid of animal protein. Ostenil Tendon also contains mannitol, a free radical scavenger, which helps to stabilise the chains of sodium hyaluronate.

Because of its lubricating and viscoelastic properties, Ostenil Tendon promotes tendon gliding and the physiological repair process. In addition, due to its macromolecular meshwork Ostenil Tendon reduces the free passage of inflammatory cells and molecules.

Indications

For the treatment of pain and restricted mobility in tendon disorders. A tendon is a strong structure of fibrous connective tissue designed to transmit forces from muscle to bone and resist load during muscle contraction. Tendons may be surrounded by different structures; fibrous bands, synovial sheaths, peritendon sheaths, tendon bursae. Overuse or inappropriate biomechanical stress may cause inflammation and/or degenerative changes of the tendon, leading to pain and loss of function. Lubricating the tendon could reduce pain, improve tendon function and reduce the potential for adhesions.
