The high cost of bone and cartilage pathologies has influenced the trend toward preventive interventions and therapeutic options that regenerate tissue homeostasis and retard progression to Osteoarthritis. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is one therapeutic application with promising preliminary clinical results. PRP is blood plasma containing concentrated platelets. It is an innovative therapeutic technique that promotes the natural healing processes in the human body as it exploits the high regenerative potential of growth factors released by platelets present in the blood. 

The aim of PRP injections is to reduce or eliminate pain and inflammation, prevent or contain functional limitations accelerating healing, or avoiding alternative treatment, from cortisone and anti-inflammatory injections to surgery.

PRP injections can be performed for the treatment of osteoarthritis and in general in cartilage damage. They are also effective in several cartilage conditions such as Osteoarthritis, chondropathy, chondromalacia patellae, focal chondral lesions etc.
