Abstract: This study investigates the safety and efficacy of intra-articular (IA) sodium hyaluronate (HA) in the treatment of synovial joint osteoarthritis. This is a prospective, observational study. The patients were given five IA of HA at interval of one week. Efficacy included self-reported pain Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and the NSAID intake. The patients did not report any adverse reaction during the study. The study shows that IA HA injection decreases the pain (VAS) and reduces the NSAID intake in OA.
