Aquamid Reconstruction is beneficial in osteoarthritis patients, having an atoxic and durable effect with tissue-compatibility.
Highly tolerated by mammal tissue by allowing in vivo vessel and fibrous in-growth.
Studies supported by histopathological observations have shown that Aquamid Reconstruction integrates over time within the soft tissues, through a combination of vessel in-growth and molecular water exchange.
Intra-articular injection of AR is expected to provide permanent pain relief and improve the functional ability through a cushioning or padding effect on the joint and thereby reduce symptoms and improve patients' quality of life.
