Abstract

The pain and functional limitations caused by osteoarthritis in joints have multiple etiologies and often involve inflammatory mechanism. The first level of medical intervention consists of therapeutic use of NSAIDs or steroids when no complications are present. Such therapies could be ineffective, or cause drug-related complications, prompting the suspension of treatment. in these cases, intra-articular injections of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid can be administered in order to reach therapeutic goals. Patients with Crohn-Lesnioski disease, affected by osteoarthitis of the shoulder or the knee, were included in this study.
