Viscoelastic Solutions

Definition : Solutions that have both viscous and elastic properties. These solutions typically consist of aqueous mixtures containing as main constituents compounds such as sodium hyaluronate, a purified sodium salt of hyaluronic acid (a glycosaminoglycan, GAG); chondroitin sulfate, a sulfated GAG; cellulose polymers with a long molecular chain ( hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, HPMC); or a combination of these. Viscoelastic solutions in appropriate concentrations are clinically used for intraocular, intraarticular, and intravesical procedures and also in dermatology and plastic surgery (e.g., for treatment of wrinkles). Viscoelastic solutions are usually supplied in sterilized pre-filled syringes and/or vials.
