Abstract

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) IS AN EMERGING BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT OPTION FOR MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURIES. ALTHOUGH THERE IS A GROWING BODY OF EVIDENCE FOR THIS INTERVENTION, A CONSENSUS REMAINS DISTANT REGARDING PREPARATION PARAMETERS, NUMBER OF INJECTIONS, POSTPROCEDURAL CARE, AND VALUE WITHIN THE REALM OF ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT OPTIONS. THIS POINT-COUNTERPOINT COLUMN PROVIDES A BALANCED PERSPECTIVE ON SOME OF THE MORE COMMON POINTS OF CONTENTION SURROUNDING THE USE OF PRP.
