Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Inter-group comparison of Mayo total wrist score in subjects with or without post-arthroscopic hyaluronan treatment 3 months after arthroscopic surgery. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Mayo wrist score evaluation consisting of 4 sections:

    • Maximal grip strength on injured side (compared to maximal strength of contralateral side, measured by 4-point scale, ranking from '0' for minimal to '30' for maximal strength)
    • Range of motion (measured by 4-point scale, ranking from '0' for minimal to '20' for maximal mobility)
    • Pain (measured by 4-point scale, ranking from '0' for maximal to '20' for minimal pain)
    • Function in daily activities (measured by 4-point scale, ranking from '0' for minimal to '30' for maximal function)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Inter-group comparison of Mayo total wrist score in subjects with or without post-arthroscopic hyaluronan treatment. [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Disabilities of the arm, shoulder, and hand (DASH) outcome measure [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Grip strength [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Visual analogue scale of pain (VAS; 100 mm) [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical Global Impression (CGI) [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Inter-group comparison of Mayo wrist subscores in subjects with or without post-arthroscopic hyaluronan treatment. [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • Maximal grip strength on injured side (compared to contralateral side)
    • Range of motion
    • Pain
    • Function in daily activities

  • Number of subjects with Adverse Events as a measure of safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Measured during the 6-month duration of participation ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Hyaluronic acid sodium salt (1%, 20mg/2ml) Device: Ostenil
Standard arthroscopy (including intra-articular injection of 5 ml scandicain (0,5%), or 5 ml bupivacain plus 5 ml suprarenin in case of post-arthroscopic treatment). Add-on treatment with Ostenil after standard arthroscopic procedure. Application twice: first injection directly after arthroscopic procedure and second injection 3 weeks post arthroscopic.
Standard arthroscopic procedure Procedure: Standard arthroscopic procedure
Standard arthroscopy (including intra-articular injection of 5 ml scandicain (0,5%), or 5 ml bupivacain plus 5 ml suprarenin in case of post-arthroscopic treatment) without add-on treatment.
