Endnotes

*Terminal steam sterilization cycles at 121°C/2 cycles/20 min. Functional tests relating to closure system and luer-lock adaptor connectivity with a minimum sample size of n=30 were conducted to validate resistance of BD Hylok™ glass prefillable syringe and stopper to steam sterilization.

**As part of a total of n=170 questionnaires were collected in 8 countries namely USA, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, South Korea and China. 87 Dermatologists, 43 Rheumatologists and 40 Orthopedic surgeons were interviewed across the regions.

During the study Healthcare Professionals who experienced a “high leak” situation occasionally or relatively often are considered as those who have “experienced leakage.” As defined in the reference study, a high leak situation is where hyaluronic acid leaks from multiple locations and more than 5 bubbles are observed during injection. A middle leak situation is where hyaluronic acid leaks from multiple locations and 3-5 bubbles are observed. A low leak situation is where hyaluronic acid leaks from 1-2 locations and 1-2 bubbles are observed.

+ First use, without Instructions for Use.

++Comparable products indicate 3 widely used glass prefillable syringe brands with Plastic Rigid Tip Cap (PRTC) based design.

Human factor results from 34 hyaluronic acid injections performed by dermatologists: No luer lock adaptor rotation or disconnection, no needle disconnection (on sufficient tightening) was experienced during injection. For trained intended users, intended uses and environmental conditions as defined in the Human Factors.

°°Breakdown of sample size (n=36) by decision making functional role: 17.5% Production/manufacturing, 12.5% R&D, 25% Quality, 12.5% General management, 17.5% Sales and marketing, 15% Procurement.
