knee injection side effects

in regard of a 54 year old female. she was given "suplasyn 50 mg"  injections (both knees, twice with a 12 month duration in between) jections but we leater heard that some types of knee injections meant to facilitate movement. but we have recently heard that in some knee injections like these, the liquid injected would become rather dense or would solidify let's say and brings back much more pain, causing a need for a new treatment which would mostly be an artificial knee joint.
i appreciate an answer whether suplasyn is from these medications, and if possible any guiadnce to the name of the medications types that cause such side effects so i would look further

Hi there!

Suplasyn is the salt of a natural lubricant that is normally found in the joint fluid and aids in smooth movements. Aside the risk of allergic reaction, it does not have many side effects and would not be the reason for a joint replacement.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
