What is the objective of a Cingal - Ultrasound Guided Injection?

Cingal is a groundbreaking treatment offered at the Scan Clinic for those suffering from osteoarthritis. It uniquely combines a corticosteroid with high-concentration hyaluronic acid in a single injection, providing both immediate and long-lasting relief from joint pain.

The objective of an ultrasound guided injection is to inject a Corticosteroid into a joint or area of the body with the aid of ultrasound as a way to see and visualise the joint/ body area as well as the needle to allow it to reach the target area as precisely as possible.

What is hyaluronic acid?

In the realm of joint health, hyaluronic acid (HA) stands out as a vital component for maintaining optimal synovial fluid health, especially during the cycle of osteoarthritis (OA). This natural substance plays a crucial role in lubricating joints and cushioning them against impact. Consequently, HA injection therapies have emerged as key players in managing joint health, particularly for individuals grappling with OA.

One standout solution in the market is Cingal, a powerful and rapid medical device injection designed to address musculoskeletal (MSK) pain. Cingal’s unique formulation delivers 88mg of optimized molecular weight HA alongside 18mg of Triamcinolone Hexacetonide, combining potent anti-inflammatory properties with the benefits of HA.

How effictive is Cingal?

Here are some key data points that highlight the efficacy of Cingal:

  • Fast-acting Pain Relief: Cingal boasts the fastest-acting pain relief among OA intra-articular pain management injections currently available. With published data supporting its efficacy, Cingal manages inflammation swiftly, providing pain relief that can last up to 26 weeks.
  • Robust Clinical Data: Backed by strong clinical data, Cingal demonstrates impressive results in responder index and pain reduction. With an 89% responder index in week 1 and 92% in week 26, along with significant WOMAC pain reduction percentages at both time points, Cingal proves its effectiveness in managing OA symptoms.
  • Proven Anti-inflammatory Effect: Cingal’s formulation exhibits a proven anti-inflammatory effect on inflamed cytokines, offering relief beyond pain management. In vitro data supports its chondroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties, showcasing its potential in mitigating OA progression.
  • Sustained Anti-inflammatory Action: Triamcinolone Hexacetonide (TH), a component of Cingal, offers a highly effective and safe anti-inflammatory action with sustained duration. Compared to other steroids, TH provides longer-lasting relief, contributing to Cingal’s efficacy in managing OA symptoms.

Why is Cingal specific for knee pain?

Cingal contains a mixture of a corticosteroid and naturally occurring hyaluronan. This is designed to bolster the lubrication of the knee joint and its ability to absorb impacts. Which, coupled with the reduction in inflammation, can be effective at providing long-term relief from knee pain.

Are there any adverse reactions or side effects to Cingal?

Although Cingal is considered to be among the most well tolerated treatments, no medication can be completely risk free. Cingal injections can cause swelling, aching, bruising, redness, or a rash to develop around the site. You may also experience skin thinning. These reactions are typically mild in nature. Nevertheless, if you have any concerns don’t hesitate to speak to your healthcare professional.
