Combination of Intra-Articular and Intraosseous Injections of Platelet Rich Plasma for Severe Knee Osteoarthritis (Sánchez 2016)
Prof. Wilson (The Regenerative Clinic) “This is a great paper from my good friend Mikel Sanchez the godfather of PRP from Victoria in northern Spain. He really has been at the heart of PRP since it’s inception 20 years ago. He shown as have many of the randomise control studies that PRP works extremely well in grade 1 and grade 2 and even moderately advanced grade 3 osteoarthritis but is not effective in grade 4. This novel treatment involves injecting the PRP into the ends of the bone using a small metal needle. The bone itself is a little bit like a Crunchy bar and is easy to inject and by injecting the bone with treating the inflammatory mediators of arthritis located within the subchondral bone or bone just beneath the surface of the joint. Using interosseous PRP he shows that grade for osteoarthritis can be treated effectively in this excellent paper”.

Positive Effect of an Autologous Platelet Concentrate in Lateral Epicondylitis in a Double-Blind Randomized Controlled Trial (Peerbooms 2010)
Mr Ali Noorani: This study compares the positive effect of platelet-rich plasma in lateral epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow). This was a double blind randomised control trial providing a level 1 evidence comparing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with the effects corticosteroid injections with patients with chronic lateral epicondylitis. The study concluded that although the corticosteroid was initially slightly better than the PRP, in the long-term PRP treated patients did much better and progressively improved. A follow up study by the same group published in 2011 with the same patients with two years followup. They concluded that those patients with treated with corticosteroid returned back to base line whereas those treated with PRP continued to improve and maintained this improvement at 2 years. They concluded that treatment of patients with chronic lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) with PRP reduces pain and increases function significantly, exceeding the effects of corticosteroid injections even after a follow up of two years.
