Treatment of Primary Stages of Coxarthrosis by Intraarticular Injections of Chondroprotectors under Roentgenologic Control


Technique of medicinal preparation (chondroprotectors Synvisc) injection into hip joint cavity under roentgenologic control is described. Technique has been applied in 12 patients (14 procedures) with primary stages of coxarthrosis. Positive effect has been achieved in all cases. In comparison with the performance of intraarticular injections using echography the presented technique is more accurate and simple for the procedure documenting. Duration of manipulation makes up 5-7 minutes.
