This post is part of a series about the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) Full Treatment Guideline for Knee Osteoarthritis.

Recommendation 16 – The AAOS cannot recommend for or against the use of intra-articular hyaluronic acid for patients with mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis.

42 trials examined the effectiveness of viscosupplementation.  The evidence was graded as inconclusive because the importance of the results are clinically unclear.
