  Title A multidisciplinary approach including the use of platelet-rich plasma to treat an elite athlete with patellar tendinopathy - a case report [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2013 Dec;57(4):301–309
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Objective: Patellar tendinopathy affects a substantial proportion of athletes involved in jumping or kicking activities. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections may be a promising treatment used in conjunction with common traditional therapies.
Clinical Features: Patellar tendinopathy is often the result of repetitive or excessive overload on the patellar tendon. Activity modification, cryotherapy, eccentric exercises, shockwave therapy, and PRP have been indicated as treatment options during various stages of this condition.
Intervention and Outcome: A 23 year old female, elite track and field athlete was managed for patellar tendinopathy with a combination of traditional therapeutic interventions as well as a PRP injection. This athlete returned to pre-injury level of competition six months post-injection.
Conclusion: Emerging literature on PRP appears to be promising for patellar tendinopathy, however, it remains unclear which patients may benefit most and whether the stage of the disorder has an impact on the clinical outcome.
Objectif: la tendinopathie rotulienne affecte une proportion considérable des athlètes don’t les activités consistent à sauter ou à donner des coups de pied. Les injections de plasma riche en plaquettes (PRP) peuvent être un traitement prometteur lorsqu’utilisées avec les traitements traditionnels courants. 
Caractéristques cliniques: la tendinopathie rotulienne résulte souvent d’une surcharge répétitive ou excessive sur le tendon rotulien. La modification des activités, la cryothérapie, les exercices excentriques, la thérapie par ondes de choc et le PRP ont été indiqués comme des options de traitement au cours des différentes étapes de cette affection. 
Intervention et résultat: une femme âgée de 23 ans, une athlète d’élite en athlétisme, a été traitée pour une tendinopathie rotulienne au moyen d’une combinaison d’interventions thérapeutiques traditionnelles ainsi qu’une injection de PRP. Cette athlète a regagné son niveau de compétitivité d’avant blessure six mois après l’injection. 
Conclusion: les documents scientifiques récents sur le PRP semblent être prometteurs pour la tendinopathie rotulienne, mais il est difficile de savoir quels patients pourraient en bénéficier le plus, et si le stade de l’affection a un impact sur le résultat clinique.
