16 units for 2mL of SYNVISC

Synvisc-One is administered as a single intra-articular injection.  The syringe containing Synvisc-One is intended for single use.  Synvisc-One is supplied in a 10-mL glass syringe containing 48mg of Hylan G-F 20.


 


If your physician stated he injected Synvisc-One then he injected 48mg, which is the same as 6mL.


 


SYNVISC is administered by intra-articular injection once a week (one week apart) for a total of three injections.  SYNVISC is supplied in a 2.25 mL glass syringe containing 16 mg of Hylan G-F 20.


 


If your physician stated he injected Synvisc then he injected 16mg, which is the same as 2mL.


 


(mg is weight. mL is volume. The mg to mL won't be the same formula for other drugs)
