Intravesical Solutions, Glycosaminoglycan, Sodium Hyaluronate
Definition : Aqueous mixtures containing sodium hyaluronate, a purified sodium salt of hyaluronic acid (a glycosaminoglycan [GAG]) intended to be instilled into the urinary bladder (i.e., intravesical solution) to achieve a local therapeutic effect. These solutions are instilled into the bladder via a urinary catheter; they are designed to help temporarily replenish the deficient GAG layer on the bladder epithelium in order to treat interstitial cystitis. The products used for cystitis relief are usually available as vials containing 40 mg sodium hyaluronate (e.g., a 50 ml phosphate-buffered saline solution containing 40 mg sodium hyaluronate).
