Abstract: Introduction Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease of the synovial joints and is the most common cause of chronic pain in the elderly. One of the treatment modalities for OA of the hip is viscosupplementation (VS). Today there are several different formulations of viscosupplements produced by different manufactures of different molecular weights. The objective of this review is to asses the efficacy of VS treatment of hip OA osteoarthritis in the current literature.
