Objective: To evaluate efficacy and effect on analgesic requirement of 6 ml single injection of hylan G-F 20 in patients with primary knee osteoarthritis
Methods: In this prospective study, adult patients with primary knee osteoarthritis (grade II to IV) were treated with 6 ml single intra-articular injection of hylan G-F 20. Patients were followed at 6 and 12 months. Difference in WOMAC score from baseline to 6 and 12 months was evaluated by paired “t” test. Numbers and percentages of patients requiring analgesics on daily basis were recorded at all visits.
Results: A total of 352 patients [male 113 (32.10%); female 239 ((67.90%)] [grade II 197(55.97%), grade III 119 (33.81%) and grade IV 36 (10.23%)] with mean age of 59.10 (4.39) years and mean body mass index 27.20 (3.81) kg/m2 were included in the study. Mean weight and height of the study participants was 68.11 (7.40) kg and 159 (10) cm respectively. One hundred patients (28.41%) patients had varus deformity. Twenty five (7.10%) and 14 (3.98%) patients had effusion in the right and left knee respectively. The WOMAC score from reduced from 64.44(16.89) at baseline to 34.00(10.31) at 6 month and 36 (11.65) at 12 months respectively. The difference in the WOMAC score from baseline to 6 months and 12 months was statistically significant (P<0.001 for both). Number of patients requiring analgesics daily reduced from 28(7.95%)at baseline to 2(0.57%) at 6 months and 3(0.85%) at 12 months.
Conclusion: Single 6 ml injection of hylan G-F was effective and well tolerated in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Hylan G-F 20 also reduced the requirement of analgesics.
