Implant Card for Viscosupplements


Starting to get Involved
I am wondering regarding the requirement for an implant card for injectable lubricant, injected to the knee joint (intraarticular hyaluronic acid product) .
I couldn’t find any rational for such a product can be exempted.

Do you have any thoughts?

Thank you!
