Viscosupplementation in prevention and treatment of the degenerative joint disease

Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders. It limits patients’ functionality and life satisfaction significantly. Although there are numerous types of therapy, the success rate of conservative treatment is limited, and it is often necessary to introduce surgical treatme...
