About Synvisc-One

Synvisc-One(TM) (hylan G-F 20) is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA). It is for patients who do not get enough relief from simple painkillers such as acetaminophen, or from exercise and physical therapy. Synvisc-One is generally well tolerated. However, it may not work for everyone. The side effects most commonly seen in a medical study were knee pain, stiffness, and swelling or fluid buildup in or around the knee. Side effects were generally mild to moderate and did not last long. More severe side effects have been reported only rarely in routine clinical use. Other side effects, such as rash, may also occur. Before trying Synvisc-One, tell your doctor if you are allergic to products from birds--such as feathers, eggs or poultry--or if your leg is swollen or infected. Talk to your doctor before resuming strenuous weight-bearing activities after treatment. Synvisc-One has not been tested in children, pregnant women or women who are nursing. You should tell your doctor if you think you are pregnant or if you are nursing a child.
