Palliative treatment of degenerative knee arthrosis
A today it is known that the arthrosis is a pathology that concerns components of the same family and that up to 24 % of the patients he presents a genetic predisposition.
The treatments for the arthrosis change, from an analgesic and condroprotectores, happening for the local infiltrations and ending in the implantation of a prothesis of knee.
Arthrosis: treatment with intra-articular infiltrations
-Corticosteroids: These have a temporary, palliative effect on the symptoms. They can be repeated several times or used as an adjuvant for other treatments and they barely enter the general circulation. Corticosteroids are used to treat both acute and chronic inflammation.
-Hyaluronic Acid: it is in use for recovering the viscoelasticidad of the synovial liquid that gets lost in the process artrósico and does that the cartilage is more unprotected. It improves the lubrication to articulate, supports the separation of the surfaces you will articulate acting as landfill of support viscoelástico and it muffles the load.
-Platelet growth factor: they are extracted from the own blood of the patient. The blood is extracted, is centrifuged and the rich plasma separates in platelets that it contains the factors of growth. These factors help to the recovery of the cartilage on having promoted the synthesis of acid hialurónico, modulating the metabolism and promoting the production of factors condroprotectores.
There is diminished the possibility of an inflammatory process and there hasten the physiological processes of the repair of the fabrics.
