Kanagarla Siva Praful [2] | D S S Phani | Dr. V. Nageshwar Rao

Abstract: Background: Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is defined as a volume of the plasma fraction of autologous blood having a platelet concentration above baseline. Platelets contain bioactive proteins responsible for attracting macrophages, mesenchymal stem cells, and osteoblasts which not only promote removal of necrotic tissue, but also enhance tissue regeneration injection is used to introduce platelets into tissue to stimulate a supra-physiologic release of growth factors in an attempt to start healing in chronic injuries and reduce pain. In this prospective study, we evaluated the results of PRP in the treatment of tennis elbow. Materials and Methods: During August 2019 to January 2020, 20 patients with tennis elbow who visited our center with failed conservative treatment were treated with PRP, and results were evaluated with VAS, DASH scores. Results: Among 20 patients with tennis elbow (11 males and 9 females) post-PRP injection significant differences were observed between VAS and DASH score at baseline and after4thweek and 8thweek (P<0.05). Conclusions: PRP when given with good care appears to be helpful in tennis elbow It is safe and a significant, improvement has been observed in VAS and DASH scores for tennis elbow.
