Hyvet is a single injection viscosupplement for restoring the synovial fluid environment post arthroscopy (for reduction of joint pain caused by inflammatory debris) resulting in lubrication of the joint and cushion improvement.
It is comprised of highly purified, partially cross-linked sodium hyaluronate (NaHA) in a phosphate buffered saline solution. The cross-linking procedure leads to an elongation of the HA’s half-life.
Hyvet delivers the highest concentration of HA currently available: 2,2 % in a 4 ml syringe, a total of 88 mg.
Hyvet is supplied in a ready-to-use prefilled glass syringe containing 4 ml of solution packed in a sterile medical peel pack.
Hyvet is to be administered by intra articular injection. It should be administered by equine medical practitioners trained in joint injection techniques.
The amount of Hyvet to be injected depends on the joint size. It should not overfill the synovial space.
