Intra-articular injection of an autologous preparation rich in growth factors for the treatment of knee OA: a retrospective cohort study
To obtain preliminary information about the effectiveness of intra-articular injections of an autologous preparation rich in growth factors (PRGF) for knee OA treatment to be explored further in future studies. Methods. We have characterized PRGF

Platelet-rich plasma: growth factors and pro-and anti-inflammatory properties
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) promotes regeneration of bone, presumably through the action of concentrated growth factors. However, it is not clear how PRP affects
the inflammatory response. The purpose of this study was to analyze the growth factors in …

Infiltration of plasma rich in growth factors for osteoarthritis of the knee short-term effects on function and quality of life
Abstract Purpose Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly prevalent, chronic, degenerative condition that generates a high expense. Alternative and co-adjuvant therapies to improve the quality
of life and physical function of affected patients are currently being sought. Methods A total …

Treatment With Platelet-Rich Plasma Is More Effective Than Placebo for Knee Osteoarthritis A Prospective, Double-Blind, Randomized Trial
Methods: A total of 78 patients (156 knees) with bilateral OA were divided randomly into 3 groups. Group A (52 knees) received a single injection of PRP, group B (50 knees) received 2 injections of PRP 3 weeks apart, and group C (46 knees) received a single injection of …

Platelet-rich plasma treatment in symptomatic patients with knee osteoarthritis preliminary results in a group of active patients
With increasing frequency, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) preparations have been used to treat cartilage lesions to regenerate tissue homeostasis and retard the progression of knee osteoarthritis (OA). Purpose: To determine the effectiveness of intra-articular PRP …

Platelet quantification and growth factor analysis from platelet-rich plasma: implications for wound healing
Abstract Growth factors released from activated platelets initiate and modulate wound healing in both soft and hard tissues. A recent strategy to promote the wound-healing cascade is to prepare an autologous platelet concentrate suspended in plasma, also …

Platelet-rich plasma intra-articular injection versus hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation as treatments for cartilage pathology: from early degeneration to …
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and viscosupplementation (hyaluronic acid [HA]) intra-articular injections for the treatment of knee cartilage degenerative lesions and osteoarthritis (OA).

Use of platelet-rich plasma for the treatment of refractory jumper’s knee
Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of multiple platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections on the healing of chronic refractory patellar tendinopathy after previous classical treatments have failed. We treated 15 patients affected by chronic jumper’s knee, …

Ongoing Positive Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma Versus Corticosteroid Injection in Lateral Epicondylitis A Double-Blind Randomized Controlled Trial With 2-year …
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been shown to be a general stimulation for repair and 1-year results showed promising success percentages. Purpose: This trial was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of PRP compared with corticosteroid injections …

Treatment of chronic elbow tendinosis with buffered platelet-rich plasma
Elbow epicondylar tendinosis is a common problem that usually resolves with nonoperative treatments. When these measures fail, however, patients are interested in an alternative to surgical intervention. … Hypothesis: Treatment of chronic severe elbow tendinosis with buffered platelet-rich plasma will reduce pain and …

Injection of platelet-rich plasma in patients with primary and secondary knee osteoarthritis: a pilot study
Injection of platelet-rich plasma in patients with primary and secondary knee osteoarthritis: A pilot study. Objective: To evaluate the clinical effects of intraarticular platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections in a small group of patients with primary and secondary osteoarthritis. Most of the current treatments for osteoarthritis are palliative and attack the symptoms rather than influencing the biochemical environment of the joint. Autologous platelet-rich plasma has emerged as …
