Question: is it ok to have hyalauronic acid knee injections if you are taking lovenox?
Answered by Dr. Anshul Varshney 36 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Risk of bleeding is there.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
Levonox is an anti coagulant so any surgical procedure carries risk of bleeding.
Intraarticular injection of hyaluronidase carries a high risk of joint hematoma and bleed.
So I would not recommend you Intraarticular injection while you are on Levonex.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
Stay Healthy.

how long does a very small amount of restylane last in the chin. The amount is about the size of a pea. It was used to fill a small depression.
