Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been shown to be effective in treating partial tears of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow in overhead throwing athletes, but it is still unknown whether it has a role in complete tears. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of PRP in treating complete as well as partial UCL tears.
As a promising alternative to traditional treatment, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is being used to encourage hair growth through the release of growth factors and cytokines. In addition to hair restoration, PRP's multifactorial capabilities can also be used to treat aging skin, facial scarring, and acne
This paper presents the cases of 3 females with knee osteoarthritis. All 3 received a single bone marrow aspiration concentrate (BMAC) injection followed one month later by a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection
[Treatment of the Shoulder Impingement Syndrome with PRP Injection]
CONCLUSIONS Based on the results of our study, the hypothesis can be accepted that the concentrate of platelet-rich plasma administered through a series of 3 injections applied in the subacromial space in patients with shoulder impingement syndrome has positive effects on the daily activities of patients as well as on the objective evaluation via the selected scoring systems.
