Viscoelastic Solutions, Intravesical, Sodium Hyaluronate

Definition : Solutions that have viscous and some elastic properties intended to be instilled into the urinary bladder (i.e., intravesical) in which the main component is sodium hyaluronate, a purified sodium salt of hyaluronic acid (a glycosaminoglycan [GAG]). These solutions typically consist of aqueous mixtures containing 40 mg sodium hyaluronate (e.g., a 50 ml phosphate-buffered saline solution containing 40 mg sodium hyaluronate). The 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 supplied in sterilized vials.
