`
INTRODUCTION

Compositions: Collagen, Viola odorata, NaCl, water for injection

Dosage Form: Injectable solution.

Packaging: Box 10 vials (single vial 2 ml – Extraction volumn).

Uses

MD-SMALL JOINTS is a medical device designed to help movement of small joints (such as those of foot, hand and ankle).

 

MD-SMALL JOINTS may be used as a single treatment or mixed with other medical devices of the same range, in order to make a customised treatment according to clinical evolution.
When a supportive treatment is needed for acute pain, MD-SMALL JOINTS can be associated with MD-NEURAL, MD-POLY and MD-MUSCLE (together with one or more than one of these).
Moreover, when a supportive treatment is needed for the connective tissue matrix or when the physiological aging process should be slowed down, MD-SMALL JOINTS can be associated with MD-MATRIX
and MD-TISSUE.
It may also be used as mechanical support while treating the following
diseases:
• Osteoarthritis of the fingers.
• Rhizoarthrosis of the thumb (Forestier disease).
• Arthrosis pain due to hammer toe.
• Carpal-tunnel syndrome (in association with MD-NEURAL).
• De Quervain disease (in association with MD-NEURAL).
• Metatarsal pain.
• Metatarsal pain accompanied by Morton’s neuroma (in association
with MD-NEURAL).
• Rheumatoid arthritis of the hand/foot (in association with MDPOLY).
• Hand/foot tendon pain due to prolonged immobilization.

Therapeutic protocol:
1 treatment weekly for 10 consecutive weeks.
Periarticular injection technique (the site of application must be aseptic; insert the

• Materials for aseptic skin preparation: single-use gloves, iodine solution, alcohol solution, sterile gauze pads, ethyl chloride spray for the skin.
The application of a topical anaesthetic on the skin area to be treated is recommended.
• Needles: sterile 22 G.
• Syringes: 5 or 10 cc size, according to the volume of the solution to inject.
Ankle intraarticular application
Foot joints can be treated with intraarticular injections in the ankle.
This treatment can be also applied to the ankle joint.
For medial and lateral approach, the foot is first placed at about a 45-degree angle of plantar flexion.
