HYALOGLIDE® & HYALOGLIDE® mini: Anti-Adhesion Gels
Prevent or Reduce Adhesions for Tendon, Peripheral Nerve and Articular Surgeries
HYALOGLIDE is a transparent, highly viscous barrier gel used to prevent or reduce adhesions after various surgical procedures, such as tendon, carpal tunnel, peripheral nerve or joint surgery. HYALOGLIDE is composed of a highly purified, auto cross-linked hyaluronic acid (ACP) and is both bioresorbable and biocompatible.
HYALOGLIDE functions by creating a physical barrier to prevent adhesions from forming. As a result of its viscosity, HYALOGLIDE perfectly adheres to the surface of the tissue, creating an anti-adhesion barrier which keeps the adjacent tissues separated while repair occurs after a surgical procedure. This anti-adhesion layer is then completely resorbed over time.
HYALOGLIDE mini has the same indications and advantages of HYALOGLIDE, but it is conveniently offered in a smaller volume for procedures requiring less gel.
The HYALOGLIDE Advantage
- Prevents or reduces adhesion formation1-5
- Safe, natural and resorbable after repair
- Quick and easy application
- High viscosity for temporary mechanical barrier to adhere to tissue surface
- Cost effective1
HYALOGLIDE & HYALOGLIDE mini are CE-marked to prevent or reduce adhesions or fibrosis following tendon, peripheral nerve or articular surgery.
