Platelet-Rich-Plasma Injections in Treating Lateral Epicondylosis: a Review of the Recent Evidence

December 13, 2019

Abstract

Lateral epicondylosis is common, with various treatment modalities. Platelet—rich—plasma injections from autologous blood have recently been used in centres worldwide for the treatment of tennis elbow. We review and present the recent published evidence on the effectiveness of PRP injections for lateral epicondylosis. Nine studies met our inclusion criteria including 6 RCT’s for the purpose of analysis. PRP injections have an important and effective role in the treatment of this debilitating pathology, in cases where physiotherapy has been unsuccessful.
