In vivo clinical and radiological effects of platelet-rich plasma on interstitial supraspinatus lesion: Case series

Rotator cuff tear (RCT)is a frequent condition of clinical relevance that can be managed with asymptomatic conservative treatment, but surgery is often needed. Biological components like leukocytes and platelet-rich plasma (L-PRP) could represent an alternative curative method for interstitial RCT.

The Role of Biologic Therapy in Rotator Cuff Tears and Repairs

Rotator cuff tears are a growing problem within orthopedics as the incidence increases within an aging population, and repair of these tears has been estimated to save society approximately $ 3.4 Billion per year.

Effects of bone marrow aspirate concentrate and platelet-rich plasma on patients with partial tear of the rotator cuff tendon

We compared the clinical course of rotator cuff tears between rotator cuff exercise and bone marrow aspirate concentration (BMAC)-platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection to identify the therapeutic effects of BMAC-PRP on partial tear of the rotator cuff tendon.

Efficacy of platelet-rich plasma injections for symptomatic tendinopathy: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised injectioncontrolled trials

Tendinopathy is the most common musculoskeletal complaint in patients seeking medical care.1 The most common sites of presentation include the elbow, rotator cuff, Achilles tendon and patellar tendon.

The Role of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Other Biologics for Rotator Cuff Repair

Surgical treatment of rotator cuff tears has consistently demonstrated good clinical and functional outcomes. However, in some cases, the rotator cuff fails to heal. While improvements in rotator cuff constructs and biomechanics have been made, the role of biologics to aid healing is currently being investigated.
