Episode 209: A joint look at viscosupplementation for knee osteoarthritis

In episode 209, Mike and James finally get back to podcasting after a bit of a break. We briefly discuss what we did in Australia and then we limp around the evidence for the use of viscosupplementation for knee osteoarthritis. We find that as the quality of the trials go up the evidence of benefit goes down. At the end we encapsulate everything we know into a pamphlet.

Show notes

1) The Kim Phuc Foundation

2) Tools for Practice

Do injections of viscosupplementations (hylan or hyaluronic
acid) improve symptoms of knee osteoarthritis?
