My name is Fabio Francese. I’m a sports medicine specialist. I have been following professional Italian soccer players for 20 years now.
I have two examples of patients treated with Synolis VA. One is 39 years old with a medial meniscectomy which occurred a few years ago.
And the other is 41 years old. He had an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury on the left knee at 29 years old and on the right knee at 31 years old.
Both athletes were professional soccer players and then semi-professionals. They continued their activity at an amateur level with a significant commitment of three practices per week. Both athletes, whom I know well, have had to suspend their activity momentarily due to gonalgia, functional limitation and joint stiffness. Meniscectomy and Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury (ACL) reconstruction are classic pathologies especially for those who do sports and heavy work.
To help the two patients, we tried a series of three injections of hyaluronic acid injections per week specifically with Synolis VA.
"Even after 6 months the two subjects continued their activities
After the first injection, the first subject had the pain level that dropped to 2, for the 2nd patient it dropped even to 1 allowing the athletes to return to play their favorite sports. One week after the last injection, the pain level of the first patient had dropped to 1 and the second to 0.
Even after 6 months, the two subjects continued their activities without limitations. The end goal of the treatment has been met thanks to Synolis VA.
