PLATELET-RICH PLASMA GEL PROMOTES REGENERATION OF ARTICULAR CARTILAGE IN KNEES OF SHEEPS

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA GEL PROMOTES REGENERATION OF ARTICULAR CARTILAGE IN KNEES OF SHEEPS

Abstract

Objective: To assess the regeneration of osteochondral defects in the joint cartilage of the knee induced by autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Methods: Osteochondral defects produced in the trochlear groove of both knees of ten sheep; defects of the right knees were filled with autologous PRP and the left knees were left unfilled. Macroscopic and microscopic evaluation was carried out 12 week later. The results were evaluated by the total score of both macroscopic and microscopic evaluations com - paring the two sides through the Wilcoxon paired test.
