[en] Introduction : Platelet-rich plasma injections are a recent treatment for chronic tendinopathies. However, this theraeutic remains controversed in litterature. Up to now, there is no prognosis factors identified to predict a good evolution after injection of PRP.

Purpose: The aims of this study were to evaluate the effect of PRP injection followed by a standardized reeducation protocol among patients suffering from different tendinopathies and to determine the good prognosis factors, if any.

Methods : 51 patients suffering from different tendinopathies and refractory to conventional physiotherapy were treated with a PRP injection. Prior to the injection, a blood sample was drawn and some biological parameters (glycemia, cholesterol level, …). A pain assessment was then made using a visual analog scale (VAS) and a pressure algometer. The same assessment was carried out after 6 weeks and 12 weeks when possible.

Results : There is an overall significant improvement VAS score at the end of the 12 weeks follow- up. However, no correlation was found between the evolution of the clinical scores and the biological parameters measured.

Discussion and Conclusions : A PRP injection followed by a program of eccentric rehabilitation positively affects the algo-functional scores of patients with tendinopathie who were refractory to conventional physiotherapy, whatever their initial biological parameters.
