How effective are hyaluronic acid injections in treating chondral ulcers?

Doctor's Answers (1)

Hi, 

Hyaluronic acid derivatives or viscosupplementation, are injectables deposited inside the knee joint.
 
While these injections may help improve pain and hence function, there is no conclusive evidence that these will heal chondral ulcers.
 
Hyaluronic acid infused scaffolds, may be inserted by your surgeon to help with healing.
 
Thank you!
