Hyaluronic Acid + Chondroitin sulfates C4 & C6 + N-acetyl-D-glucosamine Sterile Solution

Sterile Post-Surgical Lavage, Synovial Fluid Replacement, Viscosupplement

Polyglycan® Sterile Solution is a commercially available, patented formulation of hyaluronic acid, sodium chondroitin sulfate and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine used for post-surgical lavage of synovial compartments.

Polyglycan is a patented formulation designed to replace synovial fluid lost during surgery. Polyglycan contains naturally occurring components of synovia that play a central role in maintaining the homeostatic environment of the joint.

Properties: Glycosaminoglycans are important components of all extracellular tissue structures including cartilage and synovial fluid. The active components in Polyglycan exhibit viscoelastic and polyionic properties similar in nature to synovial fluid. Introduce Polyglycan into the synovial space as a postsurgical lavage, synovial fluid replacement or viscosupplement to assist in the normalization of the joint.

Directions For Use

Instill Polyglycan into the synovial space to replenish lost synovial fluid. Quantity to be determined by Veterinary Surgeon. Discard any unused portion of vial contents.


Do not administer to animals that are to be slaughtered for use in food. Keep out of reach of children.
