Synvisc-One® Knee Injection Side Effects
Synvisc-One, which was approved by the FDA in 2009, generated nearly $410 million in sales last year. The injectable gel is used to provide relief for patients with arthritis. However, an ongoing investigation revealed the presence of harmful microbial contamination.
A lot containing 18,000 syringes of Synvisc-One tested positive for microbial contamination and has been linked to increased health risks and hospitalization. Patients suffering from contaminated syringes may experience any of the following symptoms:
- Knee pain
- Trouble walking
- Heat or redness
- Fluid build-up in or around knee
These side effects can be painful and may require hospitalization for treatment, which can leave patients facing recovery periods that limit their ability to work and reduce their quality of life.
