To evaluate single centrifuge platelet concentrate as additive for improved tendon healing. Platelet-rich plasma has been reported to improve tendon healing. Single centrifuge platelet concentration may increase platelet concentration enough to positively affect tendon healing. A single centrifuge process will lead to a blood product with increased platelet concentrations which, when added to a surgically created tendon injury, will improve tendon healing when compared with a saline control… CONTINUE READING
