Background: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) infiltration represents a recent therapy for chronic tendinopathies. However, in the literature, this treatment remains controversial.
Purpose: we suggest some ideas for improving this treatment.
Methods: these suggestions were based on a review of published studies and our clinical experience.
Conclusion: optimizing the technique for PRP collection is paramount. Different risk factors must be corrected before infiltration and chronic tendinopathies must be carefully selected. Finally, post-infiltration rehabilitation remains absolutely critical. Standardization of the use of PRP remains necessary in order to optimize the results.
