Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

In our outpatient clinic, we perform treatment with PRP, platelet rich plasma by the patient's blood, by the Swiss company RegenLab (www.regenlab.com). The therapy involves collecting patient's venous blood in the test tube and putting it in a special centrifuge. During the centrifugation, we obtain separation of the plasma with high concentration of platelets from the other blood cells. Afterwards, the plasma with platelets is infiltrated into the tissue to treat(articulation, ligament or muscules). The infiltration can be guided under ultrasuond control. The injected platelets start to release different growth factors that accelerate the process of repair and tissue regeneration. For the infiltration of PRP local anesthesia is seldom required. For an effective and complete treatment 3 infiltrations are needed, with the interval between 7 and 14 days between each of them. Normal daily and sports activity are permitted, only anti-inflammatory and corticosteroid drugs are prohibited during the treatment. For the treatment of osteoarthritis, the combination of PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma and hyaluronic acid is also available.

Indications for PRP treatment:

  • osteoarthritis (knee, ankle, shoulder)
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • patellar tendinopathy
  • epicondylitis
  • plantar fascitis
  • muscle and ligament injuries

According to clinical studies, the treatment is effective in 80% of cases.

Very rare copmlications are the following:

  • hematoma formation after venous blood collecting
  • hematoma and/or swelling at infiltration site
  • infection at the infiltration site
