ARTOCOMB® is a synovial fluid substitute which, thanks to its viscoelastic and lubricant properties, promotes the restoration of rheological conditions of altered joints in patients with degenerative osteoarthritis. The product, improving the characteristics of the synovial fluid, exerts a protective action on the joint with a consequent improvement of the articular functionality and reduction of pain symptoms. ARTOCOMB® acts only at the joint where it is injected, without exerting any systemic action.
ARTOCOMB® is a sterile, biodegradable, isotonic, injectable gel for intra-articular use. ARTOCOMB® consists in a two hyaluronic acids of different molecular weight (2,5 and 4 x 106 Dalton), obtained from Streptococcus equi bacteria, formulated to a concentration of 20 mg/ml in a physiologic buffer. ARTOCOMB® is characterised
by viscoelastic properties, therefore it allows to facilitate the normalisation of the viscosity of the synovial fluid present in the intra-articular cavity. Each box contains one syringe of ARTOCOMB® and a product leaflet. A set of two labels showing the batch number is contained in the box. One of these labels must be attached to the patient’s file and the other must be given to the patient to ensure traceability.
