What is sodium hyaluronate?

Sodium hyaluronate (NaHy) [also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronic acid (HA)] is a polysaccharide. It is widely distributed in the extracellular matrix of most tissues in both animals and humans. And is found in high concentration in the vitreous humor of the eye, synovial fluid, skin, and umbilical cord.

What are the medical applications of
sodium hyaluronate?

Sodium hyaluronate is used in a wide variety of medical applications. The highly viscous liquid is used to improve the lives of patients undergoing procedures in ophthalmology, orthopedics, aesthetics, and veterinary medicine, with other novel uses being investigated.
