Abstract PURPOSE OF REVIEW:PURPOSE OF REVIEW:
The purpose of this review is to update the reader on the current applications of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (KOA). This review will focus on PRP's effect on the osteoarthritic joint, how PRP compares to traditional treatments of KOA, and provide clinical feedback on the use of PRP in an orthopedic and sports medicine practice.
RECENT FINDINGS:
Recent research into the applications of PRP for KOA has further indicated both the efficacy and safety of PRP treatment. Although research has shown a tendency toward better efficacy at earlier stages of osteoarthritis (OA), evidence exists to indicate positive effects at all stages of OA. In summary, since KOA is an extremely prevalent condition that can be a challenge to treat, it is imperative that safe and effective nonoperative treatment methods be available to individuals that are suffering from this condition.
