Clinical and Radiological Evaluation of Meniscal Healing After Percutaneous Intra-meniscal Injection of Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)


Brief description of study

Meniscal lesions are a common pathology among athletes, and have an impact on the daily or sporting practice of patients. The consequences of surgical treatment are sometimes heavy.

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) has been shown to be effective in healing tendon and ligament lesions.

PRP has been injected under ultrasound in tendons or intra-articularly for several years.

This technique of meniscal percutaneous injection of PRP is now carried out for more than 2 years in our hospital, with satisfactory preliminary results, without any complication.

All patients in our study received an intra-meniscal injection of PRP, under echographic control. They were evaluated clinically and by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) before and at 6 months of the injection.

The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of intra-meniscal injection of PRP on the symptomatology of the patients (pain, sport activities and daily life) at 6 months post-treatment.
