How does Cingal work?
Cingal is a viscous (thick) is for intra-articular injection, as a sterile mixture of hyaluronan with a steroid. The hyaluronan is highly purified and made from bacterial fermentation. Hyaluronan is a natural chemical found in the body. High amounts of hyaluronan are found in the joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joints. The body’s own hyaluronan acts as a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint. It is needed for the joint to work properly.
What’s in the box?
1 x 5ml : Cross linked Sodium Hyaluronate 88mg
Triamcinolone Hexacetonide 18mg
What are the benefits of buy Cingal?
Sodium Hyaluronate’s essential properties can:
Perform shock absorbency properties within the synovial joint
Lubricate the synovial compartment
How can buy Cingal help?
With osteoarthritis, there is not always sufficient natural hyaluronan in the joint area, and the quality of that hyaluronan may be poorer than normal. Cingal supplements hyaluronan to the knee joint, whilst also using steroid, triamcinolone hexacetonide, to provide short-term and long-lasting pain relief by reducing inflammation, while the hyaluronan component provides long-lasting pain relief. Cingal is given in a single shot (injection) directly into the joint of the knee.
Avoid Cingal if you:
are allergic to hyaluronan products or to preparations containing triamcinolone hexacetonide.
have any known allergies. You should consult your healthcare professional to determine if you are able to receive a CingalTM injection.
In a normal joint, the articular cartilage acts as a protection for the ends of the bones that rub against each other. In a joint with osteoarthritis, the articular cartilage loses its smooth surface and instead becomes irregular and frayed.
Joints affected by osteoarthritis does typically have a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid in the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints. The synovial fluid is a thick liquid that helps to cushion and lubricate the joint. In cases of osteoarthritis, the amount of natural hyaluronan is reduced and the quality may be poorer than normal, which causes irritation, inflammation, pain and stiffness in the joints.
When buy Cingal is injected it helps to add a high concentration of cross-linked Hyaluronic acid (HA) to the joint, which acts as a lubricant and shock absorber, while the triamcinolone hexacetonide (steroid) reduces the inflammation and provides fast short-terms pain relief. Furthermore, HA helps to improve the elasticity and function of the joint as well protect the surface of the articular cartilage.
