|Description|| Healon GV is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, transparent viscoelastic preparation of a highly purified, noninflammatory, high molecular weight (average = 5 million daltons) fraction of sodium hyaluronate. Healon GV contains 14 mg/mL of sodium hyaluronate 7000, dissolved in a physiological sodium chloride-phosphate buffer (pH 7.0-7.5). This polymer consists of repeating disaccharide units of N-acetylglucosamine and sodium glucuronate linked by glycosidic bonds.
Sodium hyaluronate is a physiological substance that is widely distributed in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues in both animals and man. For example, it is present in the vitreous and aqueous humor of the eye, the synovial fluid, the skin, and the umbilical cord. Sodium hyaluronates derived from various human or animal tissues do not differ chemically.
Healon GV is indicated for use in anterior segment ophthalmic surgical procedures.
Healon GV creates and maintains a deep anterior chamber, to facilitate manipulation inside the eye with reduced trauma to the corneal endothelium and other ocular tissues. Healon GV also can be used to efficiently maneuver, separate and control ocular tissues.
