How does Legend 10mg/ml 4ml Vial work?
This medication contains hyaluronate sodium. Hyaluronate molecules are long chains that form a network of fillers, which are interspersed with the normal fluids of cells. It is believed that injecting hyaluronate sodium directly into the pouch of the joint works to enhance healing of the inflamed synovium by providing restoration of the lubricating joint fluid. This supplements the normal joint fluid's visco-elastic qualities as well.

The joint fluid contains high concentrations of hyaluronate, and it also occurs naturally within the body. The hyaluronate in this medication is believed to help regulate joint cells that can increase inflammation. After injection into the joint, hyaluronate works to help the joint lining heal and increases the joint fluid thickness. This fluid works to cushion and lubricate the joints, protecting the lining.
