HYALOFAST®, the only 100% hyaluronic acid-based scaffold, has excellent clinical data to support its use in the treatment of chondral and osteochondral lesions with the regeneration of hyaline like cartilage. The positive results achieved with HYALOFAST enable patients to return to their daily activities naturally.

Below are the main clinical papers showing the HYALOFAST’s superior cartilage regeneration ability in knee and ankle joints.
