Treatment of Tendon and Muscle Using Platelet-Rich Plasma

Treatment of Tendon and Muscles Using Platelet Rich Plasma

Abstract Musculoskeletal injuries and impairments result in over 100 million office visits in the United States per year. Tendons and muscle-related issues account for a significant percentage of these visits. As our population ages and remains active, the number of orthopedic-related problems will rise dramatically.1 Younger and older patients expect faster recovery from their injuries […]

Treatment of Chronic Wounds with Autologous Platelet-Rich-Plasma

Treatment of Chronic Wounds with Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma

Abstract After treatment with platelet-rich plasma, 50% of the wounds had healed, 35.7% had reduced in size and 14.2% were unchanged in terms of area and condition. Recurrencies were not observed during the follow-up period of an average of 34.5 weeks (range 6,5 weeks-52 weeks). Conclusion: The use of autologous platelet-rich plasma should be reserved […]

Treatment of Chronic Elbow Tendinosis With Buffered Platelet-Rich Plasma

Treament of Chronic Elbow Tendinosis With Buffered Platelet Rich Plasma

Abstract Treatment of patients with chronic elbow tendinosis with buffered platelet-rich plasma reduced pain significantly in this pilot investigation. Further evaluation of this novel treatment is warranted. Finally, platelet-rich plasma should be considered before surgical intervention.

Prevention of Disc Degeneration with Growth Factors

Abstract Clinically, a large number of patients have persistent low back pain attributable to intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration. After the concept of biologically regenerating the degenerated IVD using growth factor injection was first proposed in early 1990, the advancement of molecular technology to produce recombinant proteins, including growth factors, on an industrial scale accelerated research […]

Platelet-Rich plasma- New clinical application- A pilot study for treatment of jumper’s knee

Platelet Rich Plasma New Clinical application A pilot Study for treatment of jumpers knee

Abstract This study describes a simple, low-cost, minimally invasive way to apply PRP growth factors to chronic patellar tendinosis; 20 male athletes with a mean history of20.7 months of pain received treatment, and outcomes were prospectively evaluated at 6 months follow-up. No severe adverse events were observed, and statistically significant improvements in all scores were […]

Platelet-Rich Plasma- From Basic Science to Clinical Applications

Platelet Rich Plasma From Basic Science to Clinical Applications

Abstract Research into the biology of bone, ligament, and tendon healing has led to the development of a variety of products designed to help stimulate biologic factors and promote healing. The use of the autologous and recombinant products is a rapidly growing field of orthopaedics focusing on manipulating growth factors and secretory proteins to maximize […]

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Grafts for Musculoskeletal Injuries- A Review

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Grafts for Musculoskeletal Injuries A review

Abstract In Europe and the United States, there is an increasing prevalence of the use of autologous blood products to facilitate healing in a variety of applications. Recently, we have learned more about specific growth factors, which play a crucial role in the healing process. With that knowledge there is abundant enthusiasm in the application […]

Platelet Rich Plasma in Rotator Cuff Repair

Platelet Rich Plasma in Rotator Cuff Repair

Abstract Despite clinical success rates over 85%, persistent anatomic defects after rotator cuff repair are common and depend on the size of the tear repaired. The etiology of delayed or failed tendon to bone healing is multifactorial and biologic augmentation of a rotator cuff repair would be clinically desirable. Autogenous platelets contain many growth factors […]

Platelet Rich Plasma in Prolotherapy

Abstract Prolotherapy is a method of injection treatment designed to stimulate healing.’ Many different types of musculoskeletal injuries and pain lend themselves to prolotherapy treatment including low back and neck pain, chronic sprains and/or strains, whiplash injuries, tennis and golfer’s elbow, knee, ankle, shoulder or other joint pain, chronic tendonitis/ten donosis, and musculoskeletal pain related […]
