Aquamid hydrogel is a 2.5% cross-linked PAAG made from acrylamide and N,N′-methylene-bis-acrylamide, ammonium persulphate/tetramethyl ethylenediamine (AMPS / TEMED) redox initiator system, and 97.5% purified water. It is not biodegradable and offers a long-lasting effect. Each batch is analyzed for consistency and compliance with product specification, including narrow tolerances of elasticity modulus, pH and impurities, and degradation products from the polymerization reaction. Studies supported by histopathological observations have shown that Aquamid Reconstruction integrates over time within the soft tissues, through a combination of vessel in-growth and molecular water exchange.
Intra-articular injection of AR is expected to provide permanent pain relief and improve the functional ability through a cushioning or padding effect on the joint and thereby reduce symptoms and improve patients' quality of life.
