PLUS, like the standard version of OSTENIL®
, is an isotonic solution of highly purified sodium hyaluronate (or hyaluronic acid) developed specifically for the treatment of osteoarthritis. The novel formulation of OSTENIL®
PLUS utilises the combination of high concentration of sodium hyaluronate + mannitol. This formulation offers the option to reduce the number of SH injections to only one injection per treatment cycle.

||OSTENIL® PLUS: Instructions for Use
Inject OSTENIL® PLUS into the affected joint. Several joints may be treated at the same time. Repeat treatment cycles may be administered as required. In case of joint effusion it is advisable to reduce the effusion by aspiration, rest, application of an ice pack and/or intra-articular corticosteroid injection. Treatment with OSTENIL® PLUS can be started two to three days later.
The content and the outer surface of the OSTENIL® PLUS prefilled syringe are sterile as long as the sterile pack remains unbroken. Take the pre-filled syringe out of the sterile pack. Before usage of the pre-filled syringe the tamper-evident seal has to be tilted up. As a result the crosspieces of the tamperevident seal break and the cap can be removed together with the tip cap (see pictures). Attach a suitable needle (for example 18 to 25G) and secure it by turning slightly. If present remove the air bubble from the syringe prior to injection.
