Özet

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a glycosaminoglycan polymer that has been found to have some beneficial effects on the prevention of adhesions in primary tendon repairs. The need for slow elimination preparations of HA has been identified. We have combined HA and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) in order to get a slow elimination preparation of HA and studied its possible effect on primary tendon healing.
