Single Ultrasound-Guided Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection for Treatment of Supraspinatus Tendinopathy in Dogs

Louisa K Ho et al. Can Vet J.

Abstract

The effect of a single platelet-rich plasma injection for supraspinatus tendinopathy was assessed in 10 dogs. Subjective (owner-assessed) improvement in lameness and function were seen in 40% of dogs with improved tendon heterogeneity and echogenicity in 60%. There were no significant changes in gait reaction forces 6 wk after treatment.
