Polyglycan is a patented formulation designed to replace synovial fluid lost during surgery. Polyglycan contains naturally occurring components of synovia that play a central role in maintaining the homeostatic environment of the joint.
Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
Hyaluronic acid sodium salt, sodium chondroitin sulfate, and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
Install this medical device as the final lavage prior to the surgical closure of the joint space. Quantity to be determined by Veterinary Surgeon. Discard any unused portion of vial contents Warning: Do not administer to animals that are to be slaughtered for use in food. Keep out of reach of children.
Store in a cool, dry place. Do not freeze. Properties: Glucosaminoglycans are important components of all extracellular tissue structures including cartilage and synovial fluid. The active components in Polyglycan exhibit viscoelastic and polyionic properties similar in nature to synovial fluid. Introducing Polyglycan into the synovial space as a post-surgical lavage and fluid replacement will assist in the normalization of the joint following arthrotomy.
