Ninety patients are involved in this study, who underwent arthroscopic lateral patellar release for lateral patellar compression syndrome and they had patellofemoral degenerative lesion, which diagnoses by MRI preoperatively and proved by arthroscopic examination to be early stages of degenerative changes with no loss of articular surface. The patients were divided in to two groups (A and B). Group A (45 patients) were treated by local injection of Hyaluronic acid intraarticularly, and Group B (45 patients) were no injection intraarticular.
This study was done by one orthopedic surgeon in two hospitals. Ninety patients are involved in this study, who underwent arthroscopic lateral patellar release for lateral patellar compression syndrome and they had patellofemoral degenerative lesion, which diagnoses by MRI preoperatively and proved by arthroscopic examination to be early stages of degenerative changes with no loss of articular surface. The patients were divided in to two matched groups (A and B) regarding the age and gender; Group A (45 patients) were treated by local injection of Hyaluronic acid intraarticularly, 2 weeks after arthroscopy and were followed by VAS of knee pain for one year at (3) months, (6) months and (12) months, and Group B (45 patients) were no injection intraarticular. The study started on June (2017) and ends on February (2019). injection of Hyaluronic acid was used and followed in the same way. All patients presented with anterior knee pain which failed to respond to conservative treatment for 6 weeks or recurrent of symptoms after stopping of conservative treatment which involved changes of life style and NSAID. MRI done for all patients before operation.

Materials such as COLLAGEN or HYALURONIC ACID that are injected or deposited into the DERMIS for the purpose of skin augmentation.
A group of high molecular weight chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans that form aggregates with HYALURONIC ACID.
Mucoid states characterized by the elevated deposition and accumulation of mucin (mucopolysaccharides) in dermal tissue. The fibroblasts are responsible for the production of acid mucopolysaccharides (GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS) in the ground substance of the connective tissue system. When fibroblasts produce abnormally large quantities of mucopolysaccharides as hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, or heparin, they accumulate in large amounts in the dermis.
Adverse reactions that occur initially at the site of injection or infusion. Milder type is confined to a local allergic flare reaction. A more severe reaction is caused by extravasation of VESICANTS from the blood vessel at the site of injection and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. In tumor flare reaction symptoms involve well beyond the injection site such as an increase in the tumor size and tumor markers levels, bone pain, and HYPERCALCEMIA.
A natural high-viscosity mucopolysaccharide with alternating beta (1-3) glucuronide and beta (1-4) glucosaminidic bonds. It is found in the UMBILICAL CORD, in VITREOUS BODY and in SYNOVIAL FLUID. A high urinary level is found in PROGERIA.
