High-Dose PRP injection for rotator cuff tear

Regenerative Orthopedic Case of the Week:
High-Dose PRP for rotator cuff tear.

82 year old with 6 months of shoulder pain. No improvement with physical therapy. MRI reveals a partial-thickness rotator cuff tear involving the supraspinatus tendon. After discussing options, she decided to proceed with PRP injection treatment which was performed today. Ultrasound imaging shows defect in the bone at the tendon injury (see 1st comment). Bone cortical changes are common with cuff tears. During the injection, the tear can be seen expanding and contracting as the PRP fills the defect (bright needle enters from the top right corner of the video). Ultrasound guidance is critical for accurate delivery of any regenerative treatment procedure!

Come see what regenerative orthopedics can do for you!
