BACKGROUND Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), an autologous derivative of whole blood that contains a supraphysiological concentration of platelets, is thought to invoke an earlier and improved tissue healing response. This notion has been supported by in-vitro and animal studies in bone, cartilage, tendon, and muscle. To our knowledge no published study exists of the effects of PRP in human tissues in vivo. The aim of our study was to investigate the response of ruptured Achilles tendon treated with… CONTINUE READING
